Bird-Friendly Native Plants of the Year Program

Audubon North Carolina's Bird-Friendly Native Plants of the Year program works to bring back native plants that specifically benefit birds, our environment and our local economy.

Bird-Friendly Native Plants of the Year is all about LOCAL! Local plants, local businesses and local gardens. 

Audubon North Carolina's Bird-Friendly Native Plants of the Year program works to bring back native plants that specifically benefit birds, our environment and our local economy. From the mountains to the coast, we are partnering with local plant nurseries and growers to offer more bird-friendly native plants and creating a local base of buyers seeking native plants for their cities, towns and backyards

Growing more native plants will help our birds with food and shelter as their natural habitats continue to disappear. The Bird-Friendly Native Plants of the Year program specifically targets landscape architects, city planners, home gardeners and bird watchers. The program gives information about native plants that are helpful to birds by region to create a local impact.
