May Pledge-of-the-Month:
Native Plants and Pollinators

This month you can protect our waterways by planning to plant natives!

Let’s protect our waterways by planting natives which limits storm runoff, protects our pollinators, and saves our soil. 70% of water pollution comes from storm runoff. Native plants can stop storm runoff while providing a habitat for essential pollinators (CCCW, 2023). You can plant this May and have blooms over the summer, with some flower species returning in subsequent years.

Help save and protect our waterways by:

  • Planting native wildflowers
  • Planting native groundcover
  • Creating a rain garden
  • Taking the CCCW Pledge
