Native plant gardens supply food, water, shelter and space for wildlife. By growing native plant gardens, we can provide support for birds, bees, butterflies and other pollinators. These animals pollinate many plants and enable food production, both agriculturally and for wildlife. Native plants have an evolutionary relationship with insects, which are necessary to support life as we know it.
TMNCPC members volunteer on a regular basis at the Pollinator Garden in the Houston Museum of Natural Science in Sugar Land. Chapter members have created a very attractive three page document about how to attract wildlife with native plants found in the Coastal Prairie.
