January 12, 2016. The Chihuahuan Desert Education Coalition (CDEC) will sponsor a community wide meeting on Tuesday evening, February 2 to help promote city wide efforts to promote native plant landscapes in El Paso neighborhoods. Anyone with an interest in helping the community landscape with water saving native plants that also help lower homeowner utility bills and provide food and shelter for local wildlife, is welcome to attend. CDEC chairperson Dr. Gertrud Konings said “The City of El Paso has supported our efforts to promote native plant landscapes with a special exhibit at Cleveland Square and a video on the City’s YouTube channel and on Channel 15. To reach more people with this important effort we need community wide input.”
The meeting will be held at the Garden Center in Memorial Park, 3105 Grant Avenue, from 6-7:30pm on Tuesday, February 2. For more information see the “Habitat Certification” page on the CDEC website at chihuahuandesert.org call 915-845-1476.
