For lack of a better way to reach everyone in person and online who attended my presentation to Williamson County Master Gardeners on 08 May 2023, I'm posting a handout here. These are only the slides that were particularly info dense, so forgive the lack of context if you weren't an attendee.
Note that the list in the handout is only suggested for Travis and Williamson Counties - the Wildflower Center will have suggestions tailored to your specific location, and NOT just in Texas!
These are live links to some of the items shown: The Wildflower Center, The Jha Bee Lab, NPSOT's plant lists by Texas region, NPSOT Wilco, and finally, Lynne & Jim Weber (their books are available at your local bookstore & on Amazon.)
There's a world of other resources, too! Check out Sam Drogge's incredible photography at the USGS Bee Inventory, follow Heather Holm on Facebook and read her books, follow Carol Clark on her blog "Carol's World". Seriously, there's so many opportunities to "read more about it!"
LET'S CHANGE WHAT BEAUTIFUL IS!
