SFA Gardens Lecture Series to feature Dallas Arboretum director of horticulture

SFA Gardens at Stephen F. Austin State University will host the monthly Theresa and Les Reeves Lecture Series at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 13, in the Ina Brundrett Conservation Education Building at the Pineywoods Native Plant Center, 2900 Raguet St. in Nacogdoches. Horticulturist Jenny Wegley will present “If I Hear Color One More Time, I’m Changing My Profession.”

A lover of nature, Wegley grew up in Midlothian, a small town 25 miles south of Dallas. She was the kid playing in the flower bed while still in diapers – most likely eating dirt, as well. She had her first “garden” at the ripe old age of 3 and her first succulent trials at the age of 15. She built her first koi pond at 16. Wegley graduated with a Bachelor of Science in horticulture from SFA and, after a short stint in retail, started at the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden in 2009. She is now director of horticulture there and still enjoys playing in the dirt.

The Theresa and Les Reeves Lecture Series is held the second Thursday of each month at the Arthur Temple College of Forestry and Agriculture’s SFA Pineywoods Native Plant Center. A rare plant raffle will be held after the program. The lecture is free and open to the public, but donations to the Theresa and Les Reeves lecture series fund always are appreciated.

Parking is available at the nearby Raguet Elementary School, 2428 Raguet St., with continual shuttle service to the Ina Brundrett Conservation Education Building. For more information, call Elyce Rodewald at (936) 468-1832 or email grantdamon@sfasu.edu.
