Natives Haven Nursery is a proud member of:
The Wildflower Preservation and Propagation Committee
The Land Conservancy of McHenry County
Natives Haven goals are their goals: To promote the use of native plants and to preserve natural and scenic land forever.
In 2005, my wife Terrie and I began the restoration and transformation of our 6.25 acre corn/soybean field to a "Natives Haven." Our labor of love has been very rewarding, as we have witnessed the return of a wide variety of butterflies, including countless monarchs, as well as other pollinators who are drawn to native plants. Many species of birds are also very attracted to the wildflowers, and we are proud to say that we have created a sanctuary they now call home where they enjoy an abundant source of food and nesting habitat provided by the native plants.
Bill Warzecha, Owner and Founder of Natives Haven Nursery.
