Check out wildflower.org/events (link in bio) to see what’s coming up (+ what’s winding down: #Fortlandia) including @nerdniteaustin Cave Edition + Winter Tree Fest this week! 📸: Bill J Boyd #bewickswren #do512family #thingstodoinaustin

Instagram post 2217079811431845216_1134410758 Maybe it’s hard to see through the clouds of pollen to the true 💚 of “cedar” (Juniperus ashei), but we would like to provide some balanced perspective amidst reports of “evil trees.” The species provides important habitat, enriches the soil, and can be part of a healthy landscape — but factors such as suppression of natural fires have created an imbalance. Maybe cedar fever has you feeling far from warm & fuzzy, but you can give your brain a boost with the 12 min. read linked in today’s Story. #austintexas #juniperus #treeloves #shrublife #pollenation #texasnativeplants
Instagram post 2213412380691710000_1134410758 Fortlandia Friday: Passforts! 🌿✏️ When you visit Fortlandia, pick up a Passfort field guide with fun, creative prompts & spaces for doodles + observations. It’s a great way to spend time together (or alone for older kiddos and adults!), observe nature & see Fortlandia a whole new way. It’s also a really fun souvenir! We’ve had lots of parents, public school/homeschool groups and grown-up kids tell us that the Passforts really enhanced their visit. Free for members and just a couple bucks for non-members — pick yours up (+ a cute Fortlandia pencil) at the Kiosk. Want to share your observations/creations? Show us! #Fortlandia

Learn about foraging? More walks outdoors? We’d love to hear! #plantgoals 🌿✨ #nativeplant #botanicaldreamers
