Come visit the Native Gardens at the Kellogg Bird Sanctuary, a set of beautiful botanical gardens which feature unique and attractive native plants from around Michigan. With educational signs and over 75 species of native plants, the gardens demonstrate the many benefits and landscaping possibilities offered by Michigan plants!
Native plants are an attractive and ecologically friendly alternative to the traditional ornamental plants sold in most nurseries. Because native Michigan species are adapted to local conditions, they often require less watering, show higher resistance to pests and weeds, and provide more resources for pollinators and other wildlife.
