Q. Who is Mr. Smarty Plants?

A: There are those who suspect Wildflower Center volunteers are the culpable and capable culprits. Yet, others think staff members play some, albeit small, role. You can torture us with your plant questions, but we will never reveal the Green Guru's secret identity.

Please forgive us, but Mr. Smarty Plants has been overwhelmed by a flood of mail and must take a break for awhile to catch up. We hope to be accepting new questions again soon. Thank you!

Title: Design and installation of trails at Wildflower Center
Answered by: Heather Venhaus and Nan Hampton

QUESTION:

I am a Park Commissioner in a city near Austin and am researching a firm to help design a trail system in our park. Would you please tell me who designed and installed the trails at the Wildflower Center? Thank you so much!

ANSWER:

The trails at the Wildflower Center were designed by our staff and we do offer this consulting service for others. The trails were installed by Trugreen Landcare of Austin. We have also partnered with Trugreen Landcare on a trails project in San Marcos (Schulle Canyon).
