Native Habitat Program Conservation Impact

The Native Habitat Program is a vital conservation initiative that restores urban spaces into thriving wildlife habitats, supporting biodiversity, and promoting ecosystem health. Through environmental education and community engagement, the program cultivates a culture of environmental stewardship and contributes to a more resilient and climate-friendly urban ecology.

Habitat Restoration

By transforming urban spaces into native habitats, the program helps restore environments crucial for local wildlife, supporting biodiversity and the survival of threatened species.

Pollinator Protection

The creation of pollinator gardens promotes the survival of bees, butterflies, and other pollinators, which are critical for ecosystem health and food production.

Climate Resilience

Native plants are often more resilient and better adapted to local weather and soil conditions. They can contribute to climate change mitigation by sequestering carbon and reducing the need for water and chemical fertilizers.

Community Engagement

By involving local communities in habitat creation, the program empowers individuals to become active participants in conservation, fostering a culture of environmental stewardship.

Planting native plants will:

Build Habitat

Create food, water, shelter, and space. Many pollinators evolved with native plants, feeding on specific plant species.

Help Wildlife

Help wildlife protected under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918 and the Endangered Species Act of 1973.

Connect Corridors

Build corridors for wildlife traveling to national wildlife refuge or urban areas like your backyard.

Enhance Life for All

Reduce the urban heat island effect, improve air quality, and enhance the outdoor recreation experience.
