The EcoTexan Pledge is an effort to raise awareness about the importance of maintaining a local Texas ecosystem.
Native species 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.
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, in addition to threatening the very heritage of the great state in which we live.
We encourage you to learn more about the advantages of native species and the harmful effects of invasive species. Please visit the following for more information on native and invasive plants.
