  • Recommend planting locally native plants, the historic plants in our local ecosystem, to create a functioning web of life.
    • Native plants offer optimal food, shelter, and breeding places for our native animals.
    • They are essential hosts for native insects, the primary food for birds and many other creatures.
  • Provide information on wildlife-friendly native plants for southeastern Pennsylvania and environs.
  • Present programs to local groups.
