Native Plant Habitat Gardens

In 2006, The Lehigh Gap Nature Center began a program of planting native plants in habitat gardens around the Osprey House, with additional plantings added in each of the last several years.  From April to November each year, these gardens reveal a procession of flowering plants providing nectar and pollen for native bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds, as well as providing native vegetation for herbaceous insects that form the basis of the food web.  Many members and friends of the Lehigh Gap Nature Center have been involved in the design, landscaping, planting, and maintenance of these beautiful gardens.
