Did you know native plants are plants that have grown naturally in a particular region for hundreds or even thousands of years? These plants provide the foundation of basic ecosystem services that all people and wildlife depend upon, such as air, water, food, and shelter. Despite the vital role they play in sustaining a livable environment, native plants are currently facing increasing threats from habitat loss, changes in climate, and the introduction of non-native species.
One of the ways Rivers & Lands Conservancy is working to meet these challenges is by creating native plant gardens within our built communities. Our vision is to weave a patchwork of micro gardens into a larger quilt of restored habitat while also working with community partners to beautify public spaces.
