Fighting to Preserve Our Native Environment

NativeStrong Pledge

Our children and grandchildren deserve to enjoy the same Lone Star State as we do, and this Texas heritage includes the native plants and animals that have defined this state for centuries. I pledge to raise awareness about the importance of this legacy and let others know that I agree with the EcoTexas pledge to be "NativeStrong".

Why Go Native?

Native Plants are naturally part of a local environment and fulfill important functions within an ecosystem. By planting a native species you are helping to preserve the local environment for your children and grandchildren as well as giving yourself the gift of hardier, better looking plants.

What Is an Invasive Species?

Invasive species are foreign plants and animals which invade a local environment and wreak havoc on it. Even planting one invasive species can cause substantial environmental, economic, and health damage.

Eco Texas is a nonprofit organization that encourages friends and neighbors to take action to reduce the threat of invasive species to our community. Making a difference is easy as there are many ways to help out. Join us in our attempts to lessen the threat invasive species pose to our precious ecosystems.”
