Homegrown Habitat HOST
Homegrown Habitat Hosts Garden for Wildlife
By incorporating local California Native Plants and other nature friendly practices Habitat Hosts create habitat for birds, bees, butterflies and other beneficial insects. They help wildlife navigate between natural areas, increase the pollen, nectar and habitat they need. The Hosts share information and photos of their gardens on our website in order to inspire others to do the same. Homegrown Habitat HOST front yards can always be viewed online.
The native plant habitat we protect or add to our landscapes today will determine what life looks like tomorrow. We’re all part of the web of life.

Host: Carmichael – Garden Description: This shady Carmichael front yard now screens the street giving us some privacy in the burbs. It is her place to watch her favorite plants and the wildlife they attract year-round. North facing, filtered sun, trees, bushes, perennials and annuals attract birds, pollinators and butterflies and more!

Host: Orangevale – Garden Description: Filtered sun, low water, many bushes and trees, attracts birds, pollinators and butterflies. This rain garden captures water from the property, as well as the street and directs it to flow through two separate basins to slow and sink the water before it flows off the property.
