Did you know that native plants can often support 10 to 50 times as many species of native wildlife as non-native? Or that the original American people used over 2,000 native plants for medicinal purposes? It simply makes sense to use plants that have naturally adapted to local climate, water availability, soils and wildlife. Learn about native plants that grow along the American River Parkway and around Folsom Lake. Create a healthy habitat for yourself and critters using plants that benefit wildlife, use less water and little to no pesticides or herbicides.
