Native Plants
Native plants offer nourishment and refuge to local wildlife, including birds, mammals and insects, which form an integral part of our ecosystem. Numerous animals, like the monarch butterfly's dependence on milkweed, have special associations with specific native plants. PTAS and it's members advocate for the cultivation of native plants to benefit bird health. Many of our members are involved with the Collin County chapter of the Native Plant Society of Texas, which is also based at the Heard Museum. The National Audubon Society provides a tool to help individuals find the most appropriate plants for birds based on their zip code, among other valuable resources. Additionally, the Heard Museum hosts a Native Plant sale every spring.

Organized in 1980, Prairie and Timbers Audubon Society serves Collin County and surrounding counties. We invite you and your family to join us for a wide range of nature-oriented activities. Monthly meetings are scheduled the 4th Tuesday, 6:45 pm, September through November and January through May. They are free and open to the public. Programs are related to wildlife, ecology, conservation and of course, BIRDS!

PTAS is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and chapter of the National Audubon Society.3
