Loss and fragmentation of the native landscape in Northern Virginia has impacted the ecological integrity of the region. Wildlife habitat, water quality, air quality as well as the historic, natural character has suffered. Although much of Northern Virginia has already been converted to pavement or lawns, gardeners can make a difference in the ecological sustainability of our region by planting native plants. Plant NoVA Natives' goals are to 1) promote the use of native plants in the urban and suburban landscape because of the many ecosystem services they provide; 2) educate landscapers, gardeners and others about plant species native to Virginia; 3) recruit community leaders who can be sources of information and assist others in the selection of native plant varieties.
Plant NoVA Natives Campaign is a partnership between the Northern Virginia Regional Commission, Virginia Coastal Zone Management Program, Virginia Department of Forestry, Virginia Native Plant Society, Audubon at Home, Nature By Design, Northern Virginia Soil and Water Conservation District, the Mason Sustainability Institute, and many other organizations and individuals.
