Native Plant Repository
Georgia Wildlife Federation is developing a repository of native plants to aid habitat conservation efforts as well as educate the public about the importance of habitat conservation and restoration. The repository will safeguard plants of conservation concern, propagate plants for habitat restoration, and feature an outdoor classroom for environmental education of the public. To date, two planting sites have been established for the federally endangered Dwarf Sumac (Rhus michauxii).
