Featured Resource: Habitat Enhancement Guides
In times of drought, landscaping with native plants is a great way to improve the health of our soils, save water, and create wildlife habitat. Look inside our Habitat Enhancement Guides for Marin, Sonoma, and the Sacramento Valley for ways to provide quality habitat in your area.
Improving habitat can increase property value, improve water and air quality, reduce pests, and stabilize banks alongside the added benefit of providing homes for wildlife. Find bird species lists in each guide that will help you measure your success in improving habitat in your backyard or on your property.
