Native plants are adapted to the local soil and climate conditions where they naturally occur. These critical plants provide seeds, nectar and pollen that serve as food for native butterflies, insects, birds and other animals.

The North Carolina Cooperative Extension, Currituck County Center will hold a class on Tuesday, August 10, 2021 from 1 to 2:30 p.m. Participants will learn all of the benefits and advantages when native plants are incorporated into landscapes. The presentation will cover native tree and shrub selection, native plant resources, landscaping tips and includes native and invasive plant handouts.
