Over 50 species of grasses, 38 species of trees, and various cacti and ferns have been identified and categorized in the Fredericksburg Nature Center. Our native grasses, trees, ferns and cacti provide habitat for wildlife in the area. Native plants of the area have adapted to the existing soil and climatic conditions. Grasses are important food items for many wildlife species and provide nesting habitat for others. Ground cover provided by grasses reduces soil erosion and provide cover for wildlife. Trees proved forage for browsing wildlife species, nesting and roosting sites for birds, cover, and food from seed, nuts, and fruits.
