Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge

Native or indigenous plants naturally occur in the region which they evolved. They are adapted to local soil, rainfall and temperature conditions, and have developed natural defenses to many insects and diseases. Because of these traits, native plants will grow with minimal use of water, fertilizer, and pesticides. Wildlife species evolve with plants, therefore, they use native plant communities as their habitat. Using native plants helps preserve the balance and beauty of natural ecosystems.

U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

"The nation behaves well if it treats the natural resources as assets which it must turn over to the next generation increased, and not impaired, in value."Theodore Roosevelt (1858-1919), 26th President of the United States and founder of the National Wildlife Refuge System in 1903.

The Dorchester Garden Club joins the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation in celebrating the Centennial Anniversary of the National Wildlife Refuge System.
