Native Garden

This property was largely untouched for many years before we acquired it.  As such a number of endemic native plants to this watershed can still be found growing at Curbstone Valley, from trees, to diminutive flowers.  However, a number of invasive plant species can also be found here, including French Broom, Vinca Major, Himalayan Blackberry, Bull Thistles, and various non-native grasses.  Our hope is that gradually over time  many of these invasive plants will be successfully removed, and replaced primarily with native plants sourced from local specialty nurseries, or propagated from native species already growing here.  This in turn we hope will help to sustain the numerous insect and animal species that depend on the local native flora for their survival.  For more about some of the native plant species at Curbstone Valley, click on any of the images below.
