About Native Plants


  • Native plants are great for our wildlife, soils, and local climate conditions!

  • They are great for any landscape and are highly tolerant to our year-round weather conditions.

  • Native plants can adapt to poor quality soils because of their extensive root systems.

  • They are drought tolerant and require less maintenance.

  • Native plants also provide wildlife benefits like providing food and places to live.

  • The Missaukee Conservation District is dedicated to offering species adapted to our region.

  • Our goal is to educate about the importance of native plants and their connection to pollinators and native wildlife.

  • also provide opportunities for the public to purchase native plants locally and for affordable prices.
