Join Our Native Backyards Challenge Starting May 1st!

Ready to help the Earth from your yard? Then sign up now for our free community challenge starting May 1st.

Each week in May, I will send you an email with a mini challenge to help you get to know the plants in your yard and find great native plants to grow in your area.

The ultimate goal of the challenge is to incorporate two new native plants into your yard. I hope you’ll join us!

Do you have a traditional grass lawn with a few shrubs?

Imagine instead if your yard was full of song birds and pollinators!

Native Backyards is your resource for bringing your yard to life with native plants.
