Four distinct ecological regions converge in Central Texas, resulting in a spectacular and intricate landscape that is uniquely our own. ESC strives to restore and preserve the remarkable diversity of this landscape. We also help bring its beauty to more people by integrating it with residential, commercial and civic settings.
ESC has two botanical gardens featured in prominent Texas magazines. The July/August 2013 edition of Texas Gardener (pgs 26-29) takes an in depth look at the Ann and O.J. Weber Butterfly Garden, located in the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center. The butterfly garden was designed by ESC President, Judy Walther, and installed by our crews.
The Native Plant Society of Texas, Vol. 31 No. 3, Summer 2013 edition, highlights the design work of ESC Vice President, David Mahler, in establishing the A.E. Leonard Native Plant Garden at the Caesar Kleberg Wildlife Research Institute. One of a Kind for South Texas, describes the process that was undertaken to establish the garden with more than 350 South Texas native plants.
