Audubon North Carolina’s Bird-Friendly Native Plants of the Year program is working to create more availability of native plants that specifically benefit birds, but also our environment and our local economy. We’re partnering with local plant nurseries and growers to offer more bird-friendly native plants to add to your garden to help our birds with food and shelter as their natural habitats continue to disappear.
Bird-Friendly Native Plants of the Year is all about LOCAL! Local plants, local businesses and local gardens. By supporting local growers in North Carolina, you are helping to lay down roots to buy and plant more bird-friendly native plants.
We’ve worked with growers to select our Bird-Friendly Native Plants of the Year. We’ve purposely picked just a handful of bird-friendly native plants so you can add new plants to your collection each year, while growers prepare plants for the following year. This is an add-as-you-go program where you can buy new species of native plants to benefit birds each year.
