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.
