Attracting Wildlife to your Backyard

The Macphail Woods Ecological Forestry Project has been working for years to promote the values of native plants and forest restoration. Native plants are usually very reliable – they have adapted to the climatic conditions of the area and serve a variety of functions within the ecosystem. More important they are proven performers – hardy, fitting into a wide variety of habitats, valuable to wildlife, useful for stabilizing streambanks and/or controlling soil erosion.
