Manada Conservancy works to foster healthy ecosystems by encouraging the use of native plants in the home landscape. Native plants provide sustenance and habitat for the diverse creatures that are a part of a healthy ecosystem.  These creatures include butterflies and other insects, birds, mammals, amphibians and invertebrates. Many native plants are disappearing for a variety of reasons, including development (habitat loss) and the incursion of alien invasive species.  Thousands of our native plants have been planted in the yards of those who purchase plants at our annual native plant sale each spring. We have also provided expertise and assistance in numerous restoration projects, using native plants.
