 Learn how you can easily create a habitat for our pollinators, even in an urban setting.

 Dana will guide us through the hows and whys of pocket prairies.

To counter declining prairie habitat and the related decrease in insect populations, pocket prairies have become one of the most talked about topics in gardening and naturalist circles. Typically a small, urban planting featuring plants native to North Texas, your pocket prairie will provide a welcome “way station” for our pollinators.

So, come learn how you can plan, plant, and maintain your pocket prairie.

Our pollinators will be glad you did!

Dana’s long-time love of plants led to her current position at North Haven Gardens.

She’s a member of the North Texas Master Naturalists (class of 2001), the Native Plant Society of Texas, and Texas Discovery Gardens. Dana is also on the Board of the Preservation Society for Spring Creek Forest.

Dana describes herself as a native Texan, born in Baylor Hospital. She completed undergraduate studies at TCU followed by a Master’s at UNT. She was a reference librarian – first at the Carrolton Public Library – then she taught English as a second language in community college.
