    “Xeriscape Gardens”

    Guest Speaker Neal Hinders of Canyon’s Edge Plants

    Neal is the owner of Canyon’s Edge Plants in Canyon. He has enjoyed growing plants for himself and others for more than 16 years. What started as a quest to find plants that would survive his gardening techniques has changed over the years. His interests were piqued by Texas Panhandle Native plants then Xeriscaping. He has become interested in the interaction of his gardens and what role they may have in bringing more of nature including birds, pollinators and other creatures to his yard. He likes to call this Biological Gardening.

    *This program is included with regular Zoo admission.
