Oak Park Native
Our vibrant yard contains 75+ plants, trees, grasses, sedges, and shrubs which are native to the savannas, prairies, and woodlands of Illinois. We also have a small pond and a bioswale for drainage efficiency.
Here's a current listing of the native plants in our yard (visible to the public).
View my iNaturalist Project , Nature on North Lombard to discover the plants, insects, birds, fungus, and other wild things in my garden in Oak Park, Illinois.
Native habitat creation and management is possible, even in Chicago's urban areas. Since 2016, I've learned much about what is necessary for a healthy, productive, and flourishing habitat that benefits native pollinators and birds.
