Every smart gardening choice makes a real difference to wildlife in California. You can protect native plants and the animals that rely on them by growing beautiful non-invasive landscapes.

Many non-invasive plants offer additional benefits, like lower water consumption, fewer fertilizer requirements and attracting wildlife. If you live in a fire zone, planting non-invasive, fire-safe plants can help protect your home and property from the dangers of wildfire.
