Local Landscaping

Why use native plants


Add native plants to your balcony window box or containers, a small bed in your townhouse garden or a large section of your one-acre lot, and experts tell us we will tangibly make a difference in our Chesapeake landscape. You will create habitat, grow high quality seeds and produce nectar and food local pollinators and birds need to thrive.  Check out Nuts for Natives to learn more and find a local nursery to purchase native plants from!

Check out the new Conservation Toolbox

Check out the new Conservation Toolbox!  It's a one-stop shop for landowners in Souther Maryland (Charles, Calvert, & St. Mary's) to find information about conservation and restoration programs for their properties! 

Thanks to Charles County Government and Chesapeake Bay Trust for funding this project and supporting the initiative!
