Adding native plants to your landscape is one of the best things you can do to create a healthier ecosystem and assist our declining pollinator populations. When you plant native, your yard will come alive with bursts of color, butterflies, and birds. Native plants will also ultimately reduce the amount of money and time you invest in your landscape. If you have considered planting natives in your yard and need a little guidance, then you have found the right place. In this webinar we will provide a step by step guide to planting and caring for your native garden.

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.
