Pollinators and Natives: An Ancient Marriage
Randy Johnson, Randy Johnson Organics
In this presentation, Randy looks at the co-evolution of pollinators and native plants and how this vital relationship sustains and maintains almost every terrestrial ecosystem on Earth; loss of habitat and biodiversity are imperiling this partnership. Come hear why this is occurring and what you can do to help.
Randy Johnson graduated from Texas A&M University where he earned a degree in Wildlife and Fisheries Sciences. He is the past Director of Horticulture at Texas Discovery Gardens and he has also served as the Horticulture manager at the Dallas Zoo. Randy currently operates his own business Randy Johnson Organics through which he offers on-site consultations about native plants, organic horticulture and pollinator habitat. He also grows and sells native plants and offers garden design and installation services.
See what all we’ve accomplished in 2017!

From Texas Alliance’s newsletter: “Representatives Jeff Fortenberry (R-NE) and Debbie Dingell (D-MI) introduced the bipartisan Recovering America’s Wildlife Act, H.R. 4647, which will provide $1.3 billion annually from existing federal revenues for state-led projects to restore fish and wildlife habitats. More than $60 million per year would be for projects in Texas.
Passage of H.R. 4647 would direct a portion of existing royalties from energy and mineral production on federal lands and waters to the Wildlife Conservation and Restoration Program. State wildlife agencies will distribute the money to projects for habitat restoration, scientific research, protecting land, establishing conservation easements, and other initiatives listed in the state’s Wildlife Action Plan to conserve Species of Greatest Conservation Need.”
