Fort Bend Green and their Keep Fort Bend Beautiful committee are excited to share that our second annual Wildflower and Native Seeding Project will commence this week for our fall planting! We are partnering again this year with WHF and Fort Bend County Parks Director, Darren McCarthy and will be seeding close to 30 acres throughout the County in all 4 precincts! This is something to celebrate! By embracing these local flora, we nurture biodiversity, support wildlife, and fortify our environment against the challenges of the future. Together, we can create a greener, healthier, and more vibrant community for ourselves and generations yet to come.
As Fort Bend County faces the challenges of a changing climate, native plantings offer a natural solution. Their deep-rooted systems help prevent soil erosion, improve water retention, and filter pollutants from runoff, contributing to cleaner waterways and flood mitigation. By choosing natives, we fortify our resilience to extreme weather events and promote a more sustainable, eco-friendly community. It’s a small step that makes a world of difference, not only in the health of our environment but also in preserving the natural heritage that makes Fort Bend County truly special.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at Fort Bend Green! We are so excited to see these wildflowers bloom in the spring! Thank you all so much for your support and we will see you all out in our beautiful County Parks!
