Native habitat – the one thing that all birds, butterflies, bees, lizards, and animals need.
The local plants, bushes and trees that evolved in the Santa Monica Mountains provide the specific foods and shelters that our wildlife needs to thrive.
Here’s a magic truth: if you plant native plants, you can create new habitat and thus invite Anna’s hummingbirds, majestic red-tailed hawks, adorable Carpenter’s bees, charming Blainvilles’ horned lizard and many other local species to join you on your property.
This section is devoted to getting you started in bringing back the wild in your own backyard.
