The City of Beaumont, Jefferson County, Greater Beaumont Chamber of Commerce, Texas Department of Transportation and some generous private landowners have joined together in a wildflower project for Southeast Texas, according to an article in the Beaumont Business Journal. The city and county prepared the area and the city planted a mix of 12 wildflower seeds.
The plantings are along Interstate 10 west into Beaumont. Past attempts have been spotty, since weeds tend to take over. The scalp cutting the crews did should help with that this time around.
