Go Wild With Native Gardening

Nature.org has a beautiful area on their site featuring The Nature Conservancy and Native Gardening. It includes a Native Plant Finder where you click through 4 quick questions about your garden and it provides you with a short list of native plants.

Want to see how others are using native plants in their yards, schools and other urban settings?

There's a series of videos showing you how to plant a rain garden in two days, what types of plants are best if you want to attract wildlife to your yard, what a picnic would look like without bees and other pollinators, how one school created a school garden they use as an outdoor learning laboratory, and much more. Dive in!

About The Nature Conservancy from their website:

"The Nature Conservancy is the leading conservation organization working around the world to protect ecologically important lands and waters for nature and people.

We address the most pressing conservation threats at the largest scale. Thanks to the support of our more than 1 million members, we’ve built a tremendous record of success since our founding in 1951:

We've protected more than 119 million acres of land and thousands of miles of rivers worldwide — and we operate more than 100 marine conservation projects globally.

We work in all 50 states and more than 35 countries — protecting habitats from grasslands to coral reefs, from Australia to Alaska to Zambia. See where we work.

We address threats to conservation involving climate change, fresh water, oceans, and conservation lands. Learn how we're responding."
