Artwork from 13 Denton ISD elementary schools were recognized on Wednesday, April 25, as part of the Texas Native Plant Art Exhibition. The exhibition was held at the district’s Professional Development Center, 1212 Bolivar St. in Denton.

The Texas Native Plant Art Exhibit is a project that teaches students the importance and benefits of native plants as well as their place in local heritage. It started in 2009 as a way to inform students about native and drought-resistant plants by the Native Plant Society at a single school and has grown to include Texas Master Naturalist and Texas Woman’s University’s College of Arts as partners working at 14 schools in Denton County.
 
The appreciation reception is to honor students for their participation in the native plant curriculum and submission of artwork. Certificates of accomplishment will also be awarded to each student who participated in the project, with the event showcasing their artwork for families, who can take photos and enjoy refreshments.
