Did you know that including native plants on your property can help support the diversity of wildlife we enjoy in Harpswell?  Planting natives is a simple way to be a part of the solution to support animals like Monarch butterflies and many kinds of birds.

There are many good resources about how and why to include native plants in your yard, and we recommend those listed below.

For resources on choosing and planting natives, visit:

Every year Harpswell Heritage Land Trust offers an educational event exploring how and why to include native plants in our yards and gardens and a native plant sale. Click here for 2019 details.
