Welcome to Native Plants and Wildlife Gardens

Native Plants and Wildlife Gardens is a multi-author blog whose purpose is to discuss the value of native plants to wildlife, to energy conservation, to sustainability, and to ecosystem health.

We’ve brought together some great voices to illustrate how creating healthy gardens will in turn create a healthy planet. We’ll be sharing simple tips and steps for you to implement in your gardens to make the world a greener, more environmentally friendly place.

Every positive choice to protect the earth that we make in our own gardens will cumulatively add up to huge benefits for the environment, for ecosystems, and for the wildlife who depend on specific habitats.

Habitat loss and degradation is the leading cause of wildlife species decline, so your garden really can make a difference when you learn to create welcoming habitat for wildlife and make healthy choices in your garden.

      Awesome. I just did an interview with my local paper about blogs and native plants, and said when I planted natives I noticed a ten fold increases in insects (which are sorta important). More sites like this please! :)

        Hi Benjamin! Yes, insects really are “sorta important” I really enjoyed your article about the Monarchs, too. Great incentive for each of us to add more Asclepias to our gardens ASAP

      To Carole and the other authors,

      This looks like it will be an excellent site. I love its proposed embrace of all things green and growing. So much of our world is a garden– we should nurture it wisely and well.

      Best wishes and I look forward to visiting often.
