It’s been one and a half years since the Milam Wildscspe began. My, how it’s grown!
Last year at this time, the Wildscspe was beautiful and neat, and this year it is a beautiful jungle. Three natives have made it so: Coreopsis, red salvia, and purslane.
Master Naturalists and their families/friends have been pulling these over-enthusiastic residents out.
Many creatures thrive in the garden, and there are many free plants still available.
Customers at Bird and Bee Farm continue to take home brochures, including the recent Predators and Prey of Milam County brochure.
We are propagating native plants right now, and we’re excited that a huge water fountain and coal car has been donated.
Thanks go to our volunteers: Donna Lewis, Janice and Richard Johnson, Pamela Neeley, Liz Lewis, Linda Jo Conn, Kim Summers, Gene and Cindy Rek, Rosie, Gary, and Mitch.
Email me if you would like to volunteer for hours.
