Native Plants with Ricky Linex

Registration for this event is closed. To inquire about late registration, please contact Adult Education through Cassandra at crenard@fwbg.org

In collaboration with BRIT Press, we are pleased to feature author Ricky Linex to discuss his book titled Range Plants of North Central Texas. The book is in its 5th printing and continues to be popular with landowners and students of plants.

Join us in this class for a humorous look back over his 40 years of work in North and West Texas that led to the writing of Range Plants of North Central Texas. This Country-Boy Botanist will show photos of his travels and talk about how the book came to be. You can purchase a signed copy of the book in the class, but it is also available for sale online through BRIT press at Range Plants of North Central Texas – Shop BRIT (shopbritpress.org). The class concludes with a walk in the gardens with Ricky to discover and learn more about native plants.
