314 Species on the Brink

Shrinking and shifting ranges could imperil nearly half of U.S. birds within this century. Of the 588 North American bird species Audubon studied, more than half are likely to be in trouble. The models indicate that 314 species will lose more than 50 percent of their current climatic range by 2080.

Read the report at http://climate.audubon.org. It is a comprehensive, first-of-its kind study that predicts how climate change could affect the ranges of 588 North American birds.

Minnesota Native Intelligence

If you are exploring the use of Minnesota natives in your yard for the first time, or if you have known the importance of planting natives for a number of years, this website will provide you with links to nurseries, landscapers, organizations, informational resources and authors who are dedicated to restoring critical habitat in Minnesota.

Native plants, trees and bushes are not only beautiful and low-maintenance, they provide a critical source of food and shelter to the creatures with whom they share an evolutionary history. In most instances, plantings from other eco-systems do not provide local birds, butterflies and bees with what they need to survive. As natural habitat is lost to development, it is even more important for us to use native plantings in our yards. There are so many ways to make a difference.
