Plants for Birds

Working together for healthier, more resilient communities.

Audubon Pennsylvania is making it easier to get educated and get started adding native plants to your community. Nearly all plants provide some benefit to the environment. But, plants that are native to the Mid-Atlantic region have a long list of benefits. They support birds and other wildlife through many stages of their lifecycle. They provide food in the form of seeds, nectar, berries, and nuts. And, they support insect species that are crucial to the survival of nestlings. Native plants also contribute to healthier more resilient communities by adding shade, storing carbon, and absorbing stormwater to help reduce flooding and polluted run-off after storms.
