The 10-acre nursery located in Southwest Montgomery County and 25 miles from the Houston Central Business District was established in 2006. Plants harvested from the growing ponds have restored over 1,700 acres of freshwater marsh habitat. The nursery contains 30 species of marsh margin, shallow emergent, deep emergent, and floating/submerged native plants.

Originally operated by Apache Ecological Service, RES now oversees the licensing and operations.

Specializations:

  • Freshwater marsh habitat restoration
  • Coastal dune restoration
  • Invasive species eradication
  • Coastal estuarine marsh restoration
