Native Shrub or Small Tree (examples: Blueberry, Red Bud, or Dogwood)
Flowering shrubs and trees not only provide a beautiful backdrop for Williamson Preserve, but provide forage for numerous pollinators and other wildlife species. Birds and small mammals in particular benefit from the fruits and seeds. Help us restore a diversity of native shrubs and trees at Williamson Preserve.
Native Fruit Tree or Shrub (examples: Persimmon, Plum, or Paw Paw)
When most people think of fruit trees, they probably don’t think of species native to the Southeastern United States. However, our region contains numerous native fruit species! Plant a native fruit tree that will produce food for wildlife and people too, including farm partners or other groups that may periodically collect fruit.
Large Hardwood Tree (examples: Walnut, Oak, or Hickory)
Mixed hardwood forests dominated by oak and hickory species once dominated much of the Piedmont landscape. Help TLC restore these hardwood trees that provide numerous benefits for both nature and people to Williamson Preserve. These species take decades to reach maturity, so you will be ensuring the next generation of nature lovers is able to experience these majestic giants.
10,000 square feet of Pollinator Habitat
Native grasslands and meadows are a declining ecosystem in North Carolina but provide critical habitat for many species, especially birds and pollinators. Help TLC restore a native plant meadow, increase the populations of native pollinators, and help support adjacent farmland through pollination services.
