The Tarrant County Urban Landscapes project seeks to improve the ecological integrity of the Fort Worth urban ecosystem by empowering residents to make informed decisions about their impact on local resources. One product of this project is the BRIT Ecoscapes web site which helps residents of Tarrant County select the ideal native plants for the soil and environmental conditions of their particular location. This project embodies BRIT’s mission “to conserve our natural heritage by deepening our knowledge of the plant world and achieving public understanding of the value plants bring to life.”
