HGCNY participates in various native plant projects, working toward our Wild Ones mission to preserve biodiversity.
Wild for Monarchs
HGCNY is Wild for Monarchs, too! Learn more about our monarch-related activities.
Bird-friendly Native Plants of the Year
Inspired by the North Carolina Audubon’s Bird-friendly Native Plants of the Year program, we’re working with the local Onondaga Audubon chapter to create a similar program here in CNY.
We started our first year’s list of “Birdy Dozen” plants in 2017 and also developed lists for 2018 and 2019 (to give nurseries time to propagate plants). After that, we’ll add one Birdy Dozen list each year, three years in advance. Learn more about our project and see our plant lists.
We offer a FREE six-session discussion course for small groups (or even individuals).
