The UTEP Centennial Museum and Chihuahuan Desert Gardens present the 2015 FloraFEST – Native Plant Sale from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, April 25 and Sunday, April 26, at the Museum, corner of University Avenue and Wiggins Road on the UTEP campus.

FloraFEST is the annual fundraiser for the maintenance and operation of the Chihuahuan Desert Gardens and is the LARGEST sale of its kind in the region.

Shoppers can purchase native plants and visit with local Master Gardeners and other plant experts for advice on how to care for their plants at home. Most of the plants sold at FloraFEST are not available at local nurseries or retailers.

This year’s theme is “FloraFEST 2015 – Celebrating West Texas” and, as a new FloraFEST feature, there will be a series of lectures and events leading up to the big two-day native plant sale.

The Centennial Museum and Chihuahuan Desert Gardens – a part of The University of Texas at El Paso – will present the exhibit “Authentic Texas: People of the Big Bend” Feb. 12 through May 16, 2015. The exhibit, based on the 2013 award-winning book by the same title (University of Texas Press), features the photography of Bill Wright and stories by Wright and Marcia Hatfield Daudistel.
