Native Plant Habitat North Carolina is an extremely diverse region with many native plants.

Guests Carol Buie-Jackson - Habitat Steward with the NC Wildlife Federation Dr. Doug Tallamy - Author, Bringing Nature Home: How Native Plants Sustain Wildlife in Our Gardens Ernie McLaney - CPCC Center for Sustainability
