FACTS THAT MOTIVATE & INFORM OUR WORK WITH NATIVE PLANTS
Native wildlife need native plants to survive. Millions of years of coevolution between local plants and local insects have resulted in specialized relationships that offer pollination in exchange for food. When native plants are missing, insect populations suffer. Fewer insects leads to declines in bird populations, and so on. The web of life relies on native plants at the base of it all.
