Native plants create a genetically diverse ecosystem. Here are some beautiful plants that you can incorporate to your home or work gardens.
If you're interested in getting more involved with native plants, you can check out our Friends Of Shirley Heinze (FOSH) group. Each year they present a Bringing Nature Home Award to the individual, organization, or corporation that has the best native plant garden. Or if you like getting an Eco Workout! you can come out for a volunteer workday and see native plants in action.
