About the Program
The Plano Headquarters program is operated in Plano, Texas by Toyota Motor North America. Plano is situated approximately 25 miles to the north of Dallas. The Plano Headquarters site contains around 10 acres of landscaped habitat. In order to reach participants remotely, a virtual Awareness and Community Engagement project centering on use of local native plants has been developed and implemented by the program team. 

Practices and Impacts

Backyard Gardening Virtual Event
  • The event is created with assistance from local Master Gardeners and Naturalists of the Heard Natural Science Museum and Wildlife Sanctuary;
  • Participants are introduced to a local grassland ecoregion of note, the Blackland Prairie, as well as specific information on choosing the right native plants for backyard planting and their value to wildlife;
  • Feedback on the event is collected and evaluated to gain insights as the project moves forward.
