Native plants are critical to the millions of migratory songbirds that visit the Eastern Shore of Virginia each spring and fall.  Migratory songbirds need the berries and insects provided by Eastern Shore native plants to fuel their long journey.  The Shore is one of only a few rest stops for these and other migratory birds.  Help make the Shore a generous rest stop!


The Plant ES Natives campaign is part of a coast-wide regional native plant marketing initiative being coordinated and funded by the Virginia Coastal Zone Management Program through grants from the NOAA under the federal Coastal Zone Management Act.
