Have a desire to make your outdoor space more inviting to birds, butterflies, and other wildlife? We’d love to help! Our goal is to help you create a welcome place for wildlife in your outdoor spaces… and it first starts with native plants.
What’s a native plant?
“A plant is considered native if it has occurred naturally in a particular region, ecosystem, or habitat without human introduction.” – National Wildlife Federation
“A plant that is a part of the balance of nature that has developed over hundreds or thousands of years in a particular region or ecosystem. Only plants found in this country before European settlement are considered to be native to the United States.” – United States Department of Agriculture
“All plants are not created equal, particularly in their ability to support wildlife. Most of our native plant-eaters are not able to eat alien plants, and we are replacing native plants with alien species at an alarming rate, especially in the suburban gardens on which our wildlife increasingly depends. My central message is that unless we restore native plants to our suburban ecosystems, the future of biodiversity in the United States is dim.” – Doug Tallamy in Bringing Nature Home
