We have developed the following educational materials to help you specify the appropriate native plant species and products on your next project.  Our goal at North Fork Native Plants is to give you the knowledge to confidently use and specify native plants.  Native plants play an integral role in the ecological function of habitat restoration projects.  Each native plant in a natural wetland, stream or riparian setting provides functions to stabilize the site; provide habitat for fish, wildlife and birds; and keeps out noxious weeds.  Diverse native plant communities provide the habitat that allow wildlife to forage, nest, rest and avoid predators within an ecosystem.  They are a necessary building block for habitat restoration projects to be successful.  Native plants are what provide the “habitat” in habitat restoration projects.  Without them, well designed and constructed projects often function as designed but do not function ecologically. 



Guidelines for Wildlife Friendly Ponds These guidelines were developed to help you design wildlife friendly ponds that function ecologically and add habitat value to the landscape.
Wetland Plant Guide The North Fork Native Plants - Wetland Plant Guide was developed to help you select the appropriate species to match your project goals and site conditions.
