CONSERVATION

PLANT IDENTIFICATION PROJECT

Nature Trails in Trophy Club Park (TCP)

 

 

An extensive cataloging of the plants within the Trophy Club Park (TCP) continues to be an ongoing project for KTCW. Cataloging the plant name, its location along the trail, origin (Orig), longevity (Long) and season of growth (SoG) are examples of the data being collected.

 

Org = Native (N) or Introduced (I)

Long = Annual (A), Bi-Annual (BA), or Perennial (P)

SoG = Cool (C) or Warm (W)

 

Below you will find some of the plants you may encounter on your hike through the park for the coming month.

Linex, USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Service (right) is referenced for added insight and information (RPNCT). *KTCW is greatly appreciative for the use of imagery from this resource guide as an educational reference herein.
