Join BRIT as we highlight some of the over 2,200 species of plants that call North Central Texas home. In this exhibition, the Botanical Research Institute of Texas presents just a fraction of that biodiversity with a selection of our herbarium specimens and library materials. Exhibit specimens were selected in part from the Master Plant List for Texas Range and Pasture Plants, which will be used for the 4H and FFA plant identification competition held during the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo in January.

Most of the species you will see here are truly native to this place and to the prairies that once grew all around us.
