Native plants are beautiful, functional, and essential. Your choice to use natives will impact our local ecosystems, which includes a diverse mix of plants, water, fungi, soil organisms, insects, birds, insects, mammals, and you (to name a few). Plants are the foundation of nature’s food web.
Housing, retail, and commercial development will continue to disturb natural habitats. By choosing natives as we build outdoor spaces you can establish a landscape that is uniquely Wisconsin. Create a sense of “place” for yourself while supporting and restoring countless interdependent species in the natural food web.
This mission applies to everyone, including those with residential lots, commercial properties, municipalities, or expansive land preserves. All for whom we grow.
