Fun Facts – Did you know?
The Green Bay Trail is on the Map!
The Green Bay Trail has met the Homegrown National Park challenge. The Trail’s restoration showcases results achieved by implementing practices advocated by the Homegrown National Park initiative.
Homegrown National Park cofounders Doug Tallamy, author of Bringing Nature Home, and Michelle Alfandari, advocate using public and private spaces to support and expand biodiversity; “In the past, we have asked one thing of our gardens: that they be pretty. Now they have to support life, sequester carbon, feed pollinators, and manage water.”
83% of U.S. land is privately owned. Tallamy and Alfandari challenge property owners to select ecologically effective plants, shrink lawn size and remove invasives on these sites. These efforts will significantly restore the needed diversity to offset increasing climate change impacts.
*Accept the challenge. Start this fall and view the results next spring.
