Environmental lessons from a rare local plant

January 10 @ 6:30 pm
Mount Pleasant School, Dubellette St, Weatherford, TX 76086
Weatherford, TX 76086 United States
+ Google Map

The Comanche Peak prairie clover, which is only found in a few counties in this area, is so rare that it is at high risk of extinction. That has drawn the attention of Tarleton State University grad student Seth Hamby, who is doing research on how to save and restore the species, formally known as Dalea reverchonii.
Hamby will discuss his research project at the Jan. 10 meeting of the Cross Timbers Chapter of the Native Plant Society of Texas in Weatherford. The plant is only found on certain limestone soils in North Central Texas. It shares that habitat with other species that have evolved to handle hot, dry conditions and Hamby says such plants “may play an important role in re-vegetating areas affected by a changing climate.”
He was awarded a $2,000 research grant in 2018 for his project from the Native Plant Society.
Hamby grew up in rural South Carolina, where his appreciation of plants first blossomed. He received a bachelor’s degree from Tarleton in wildlife, sustainability and ecosystem sciences and is working on a master’s degree there. While at Tarleton, he created the Bosque River Nature Center and founded the Prairie Oaks Master Naturalist chapter, where a partnership with Tarleton has allowed students to get college credit for master naturalist training, a first in Texas. He plans to pursue a Ph.D. in botany at Oregon State.
The program will be Thursday, Jan. 10, following the chapter’s monthly business meeting at 6:30 p.m. The regular location of the chapter’s monthly meetings has changed. The meetings will now be held at the restored Mount Pleasant School, 213 Raymond George Way in Weatherford. Visitors are always welcome, and light refreshments will be available.
The mission of the Cross Timbers Chapter is to promote the conservation, research, and use of native plants and plant habitats in Texas through education, outreach and example. For more information, visit http://npsot.org/wp/crosstimbers.

How a bug and a cactus changed history

Many Texans know this little trick to amaze the kids — find a prickly pear cactus pad with fluffy white stuff on it, mash the white stuff between your fingers and watch them become dyed a bright crimson. But there’s way more to that phenomenon of nature — the cochineal insect — than you probably knew.
The rest of the story is the topic for the October meeting of the Native Plant Society’s Cross Timbers chapter in Weatherford. Wildlife biologist Ricky Linex will present a program titled “In Search of a Perfect Red — The Story of How the Insect Cochineal and Prickly Pear Cactus Forged a Dyeing Industry that Lasted For Centuries.” The meeting will be at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 10, at Mount Pleasant School, 213 Raymond George Way in Weatherford.
Five hundred years ago, Linex said, the Spanish conquistadors arriving in what is now Mexico discovered the Aztecs selling a red dyestuff in open markets. When the dye was shipped back to Spain it created a sensation as the brightest red color that was known, and this dye ruled the color trade in textiles for 350 years. But it took several hundred years for Europeans to figure out where the dye came from — a scale insect called cochineal. Linex’s talk will explore the fascinating history of this insect and its dependence on the common prickly pear.
Linex is a wildlife biologist for the Natural Resources Conservation Service headquartered in Weatherford and is well known across the 52 counties in North central Texas where he works. He is the author of “Range Plants of North Central Texas, A Land Users Guide to Their Identification, Value and Management,” a plant identification book for Texas.
Visitors are welcome and light refreshments will be available.
