Some of our most beautiful wildlife is also some of our most vulnerable wildlife. Bluebirds, goldfinches, warblers and dozens of other treasured Midwestern birds need our help to survive. So do monarchs, other butterflies and dragonflies and pollinators. The biggest challenge is finding good habitat that offers food, shelter and water. Eco-landscaping can play a huge role in solving that problem while also creating beautiful landscapes for people. Native plants are the most critical component.
