September Classes Bring Water Conservation Alternatives To Life

Water conservation is a huge concern with the recent heat waves, but many  people don’t realize what they can do to help conserve water. Fortunately, the Bob Jones Nature Center is offering two workshops on water conservation during the month of September, in addition to their routine programs.

The AgriLife EXTENSION workshop is made up of two courses: Saving from a RainyDay: Making a Rain Barrel on September 1, and Native and Adaptive Plants: A Water Conserving Landscape on September 8. Citizens will learn how to conserve rain water in a 55 gallon rain barrel they hand-make in the first course, and will learn plant species that require almost no water to maintain in the second.

Saving from a Rainy Dayis $60 for members and $70 for non-members. Native and Adaptive Plants is $10 for members and $15 for non-members. You may register for these classes by e-mailing the Bob Jones Nature Center at or by calling (817) 939-1110.  Please note that there is a minimum registration requirement of 10 participants for each class.
