California Native Plant Week is underway
HUMBOLDT COUNTY- It’s California Native Plant Week and community members are raising awareness about the importance of these plants.
There are over 8,000 species of native plants throughout the state including trees, shrubs, wildflowers and things you can eat like Indian potatoes.
One local planter we spoke with, Monty Caid, says by planting native plants in your yard, you can help support our struggling wildlife and also restore natural biodiversity that once existed.
Caid said, "You can help sustain birds and butterflies, you can conserve water because their adapted to the local environment and the local amount of rainfall that we get, and they can also provide you with nutritious and delicious foods and affective medicines as well that are drought tolerant and fit our local ecology."
Native Plant Week is the third week of April every year.
