Back To Natives Restoration
Irvine, CA

Ecological restoration is now recognized as an essential element in the solution to our global environmental crisis. The ecological restoration industry has surged in the past five years.

Restoration sites and habitat gardens provide additional habitat for arthropods and birds, while promoting awareness of and public support for the protection of wild, open space.

Gardening should be enjoyable not a punishing labor, BTN will show you how to make it fun again while providing habitat for birds and butterflies!

Cool cities with cool roofs and urban forestry While not everyone is interested in providing habitat for animals, interest in native plants is on the rise due to health concerns and saving money. Many of the synthetic pesticides used agriculturally and in conventional gardens contain suspected carcinogens and/or mutagens (a "mutagen" is a chemical that causes mutation, for example, a birth defect). The negative public health consequences of synthetic chemicals are not limited to pesticides. Fertilizer run off is known to foul water supplies, create algae blooms and kill fish, etc. Landscaping with natives eliminates this risk because chemical pesticides and fertilizers are not required.

Back To Natives Restoration is dedicated to the restoration and conservation of Orange County and California wildlands, through education and restoration programs featuring native plants as a centralizing theme. BTN promotes native plants, as well as habitat restoration and preservation by offering habitat restoration services and environmental education.

  • Native Plant Propagation Program
  • Native Plant Garden Consulting
  • Volunteer Training and Recruitment
  • Event Promotion and Media Relations

Through community outreach and education, Back to Natives strives to involve the community in the process of ecological restoration and conservation. We believe that a little "ecological enlightenment" and a chance to "get your hands dirty" is the best way to improve relations between people and Nature.

Back to Natives assists in the recovery of Orange County’s biodiversity through the restoration of open spaces, and the development of habitat gardens.

Our environmental education programs educate students and community members about the importance of native plants and biodiversity. Through our efforts we increase public understanding and appreciation of our quickly diminishing resources, and as a result, inspire the public to use wilderness resources wisely and respectfully, and to assist in the effort to protect our wildland areas. Back to Natives works to create public awareness of the rich environmental resources the County and the State have to offer, and the need to preserve them for generations to come.
