Watch this website for selecting native forbs

Careful research by Entomologist Doug Tallamy at the University of Delaware has shown the benefit of native plants for the food web. Over the last two years he and research assistant Kimberly Shropshire have identified and quantified how to create what Tallamy calls “foraging hubs” for birds on private as well as public land. The research forms the basis of a new website, soft-launched May 1, 2016, with a search-by-zip code function to come soon. Here’s where you check it out. Or, read about it: “For the Birds Indeed” by former MELA Executive Director Carol E. Becker in Landscape Architecture Magazine, May 2016.
