Plant ES Natives Campaign Overview Fact Sheet (pdf)
The logo of the "Plant ES Natives" campaign depicts a branch of Downy Serviceberry (Amelanchier arborea) with berries - shown left in flower - and a Scarlet Tanager, a migratory songbird who need the berries and insects provided by this and other Eastern Shore native plants to fuel their long journey. The Shore is one of only a few rest stops for these and other migratory birds.
