Plant Programs

From aquatic to upland species, the kinds of plants found in a habitat can tell you a lot about how healthy the area is. Benton SWCD has a robust native plant outreach program with two native plant sales, searchable native plant database, resources for supporting birds, pollinators, and prairie landscapes. We can also help you with invasive plants – our website offers a searchable database, weed ID flyers, and annual events. See what we have for you.
