Audubon’s NATIVE project is training farmers to grow native plants as an environmentally friendly, climate change-resistant specialty crop that provides both income and on-farm wildlife habitat. Income is from the sale of seed to meet the growing demand for locally sourced native warm season grasses, including Big Bluestem, Little Bluestem, Indiangrass, and Switchgrass, plus pollinator-friendly forbs, like Blazingstar, Coneflower, and Compassplant, needed to restore Arkansas's prairies.
Audubon Arkansas's Flail-vac is up and running, sweeping up Little Bluestem seeds so that farm production plots can be made for Audubon's NATIVE Project.
