Pond with EC wetland plants Monarch on Goldenrod Wetland Plant ID Class

Wetland plants prevent erosion, stop pollutants from entering the waterways and provide habitat for native species. We planted over 400,000 wetland plants by hand for restoration projects that we completed in 2017. The habitat will offer protection and food sources for Black ducks, Mallards, Diamond Back turtles, Monarch butterflies, and hundreds of species of creatures that share our surroundings.

Fall Native Plant Sale
One Day Only!
Friday, September 7th
from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm

Environmental Concern’s (EC) annual Fall Native Plant Sale will be held on Friday, September 7th. EC invites you to come browse the “new natives” offered at the sale. Making the wise choice to use native plants in your landscape provides beneficial food, a safe nesting area, and cover from harsh weather conditions for birds, butterflies and beneficial insects. By planting native species, you can help restore areas that are being displaced by invasive, exotic or ornamental plants that have less or no value to wildlife. Choose from a selection of “home grown” native plants for a variety of garden sites and conditions - from backyard ponds to upland butterfly gardens.
