 Over 80 species of birds, including the horned grebe, scarlet tanager, gadwall, and ring-neck duck, have destroyed over 90 percent of their summer habitat. Therefore, planting native plants helps to feed these birds, provide housing, and helps them pollinate the remaining plants. Additionally, many native plants like buttonbush and black-eyed Susans naturally attract butterflies that are essential pollinators. 

 

 Stop Soil Erosion

 

 A large portion of Pennsylvania's soil washes down rivers and streams yearly into the Atlantic. Native plants like vetch, rye, and clover send out nets of roots helping to hold topsoil in place. Furthermore, they help feed the soil with valuable nutrients when tilled back into the ground.

 

 Store Carbon

 

 Native plants store carbon helping to slow climate warming by helping to keep carbon dioxide from building up in the atmosphere. Furthermore, as a byproduct of photosynthesis, oxygen in the air is created by plants.

 

 Require Less Water

 

 Native plants usually require less water than plants introduced into the environment. After becoming established, you can enjoy their unique beauty while working less to keep your yard looking fantastic. Most native plants have deep roots, allowing them to thrive even when little rain falls. Additionally, these plants generally require less fertilizer and pesticides than plants introduced into an environment.
