Prairie and Native Plant Demo Garden

Rattlesnake Master-WPThe prairie demo garden is located in Seabourne Creek Nature Park off of the parking area for the Prairie Section.  The purpose of the demo garden is to show people how prairie and native plants can be used in a garden and also to identify prairie plants.

Several of the plots in the garden are “Natural Prairies” and show what a native prairie might look like.  Other beds in the garden illustrate pollinator plants, a backyard prairie garden, a gulf muhly plot, a butterfly garden, a bee garden and a hummingbird garden.  The garden is always a “work in progress” and is maintained by the Coastal Prairie Chapter of the Texas Master Naturalists.
