Watershed councils have a strong focus on native plants, restoring habitat, and restoring impaired watersheds. They have a wealth of information on the habitats and important species in your backyard and surrounding area. They work on a voluntary basis with Landowners, Municipalities, “Friends Of” groups, and state and federal agencies to restore habitats for beneficial species.
Contact your local watershed council for more information on your local area.
