We have heard a concern from homeowners in the community that they don’t know enough about plants or ecology to transform their traditional landscapes into living landscapes which attract birds, insects and butterflies. We also know that the youth of the area have expressed interest for more hands

on activities that raise awareness and respect for the environment and ecosystem relationships. We have developed a new program to address both concerns. The Friends of the Red River National Wildlife Refuge “Plant with a Purpose Garden Station” program will serve as a platform to promote community engagement in environmental education and the benefits of using native plants in landscapes. The Garden Station will provide a unique venue for the public to learn about native plants for Caddo Bossier and their interaction with wildlife and how this interaction can restore ecosystem productivity. 

The community will benefit by having an expanded opportunity to enjoy and discover more about the Red River Refuge and its distinctive type of natural ecosystem while being close to home.
