Intro to Wildflowers
Wildflowers enhance our landscape with their beauty, but their importance goes well beyond what the eye can see. They provide critical food and habitat to native wildlife, help conserve water, reduce erosion and help mitigate the effects of climate change. Throughout this tour you will learn the ins and outs of planting native wildflowers and plants, and how you can turn part of your own yard, field, or patio into an oasis of beneficial habitat.
