Native bunch grasses often go unnoticed among more charismatic and easier-to-recognize plants of the Texas Hill Country, but they provide essential soil and water conservation functions to the ecosystem.  Learn how their eradication by grazing and mowing threatens the health of our aquifers, rivers, and hillsides, as well as how to identify common and crucial species which could be growing in your backyard.
