Prairie Restoration Effort At Precious Bridgeview Prairie

The Village of Bridgeview, Township of Lyons’ Clerk’s Office, Sag Moraine Native Plant Community, and the Tallgrass Associates are embarking on an exciting project to restore a hidden gem that is often overlooked in Bridgeview. Bridgeview’s Shooting Star Prairie is located on Harlem Avenue and 76th Street and is 12 acres of remnant and restored prairie.

Our 3rd Annual Native Plant Sale was a great success!

Sag Moraine extends sincere thanks to those of you who supported our 2024 sale: volunteers, vendors, and the hundreds of you who “adopted” new plants from our sale for your landscape, and are helping to support our pollinators, birds, and native biodiversity, one plant at a time!

Volunteer With Us

About Sag Moraine Native Plant Community

Located in northeast Illinois, we are dedicated to restoring native plants to our residential, business and public landscapes. Loss of natural habitat and the native plants within has led to an alarming decline in pollinators, birds, and ecosystem health. This problem can only be solved through the efforts of private landowners, not government legislation. More than 85% of Illinois is privately owned. What we plant at our own home or business can have great impact on our environment. Together we can make a difference!

We cannot in fairness rail against those who destroy the rain forest or threaten the spotted owl when we have made our own yards uninhabitable.

Community

Sag Moraine is a non-political community of people who value the promotion of native plants for the protection of our local ecosystems. We provide regular opportunities to connect, learn and share ideas both remotely and in person. Please join us as we restore our environment one plant at a time.

Every time we choose a native plant for our landscape we create a more vital and sustainable ecosystem.
