To add your property to the online map of “homegrown national parks,” you first need to create an account, including a password. Once you have an account, a firefly marks approximately where your property is located on the map, and you can create a Personal Planting Goal. As you record your plantings in your account, the program shows how much you’ve completed and accomplished via a tracking bar. The website offers numerous resources, including
- recommendations for native plantings in containers for those who do not have yards,
- lists of native plant nurseries and native-plant landscaping companies by state,
- educational videos,
- links to non-profit resources, and
- both a brochure to print and a sign to purchase to help spread the word.
