ECOLOGICAL BENEFITS FOR THE SAINT LOUIS COMMUNITY:

1) REINTRODUCES BEAUTIFUL PLANTS THAT ARE NATIVE TO MISSOURI. IT IS LIKEY YOU HAVE NEVER SEEN MOST OF THEM.

2) PROVIDES FOOD IN THE FORM OF NECTAR AND POLLEN FOR BEES AND BUTTERFLIES. AFTERALL BEES
AND BUTTERFLIES POLLINATE 1 IN 3 BITES OF FOOD YOU EAT!

3) PROVIDES BREEDING HABITAT FOR MONARCH BUTTERFLIES. THEIR POPULATION HAS DECLINED BY AS  MUCH AS 90% RECENTLY AND IF THIS HAPPENED TO HUMANS WE WOULD BE WORRIED TOO. 

4) DEEPLY ROOTED PRAIRIE PLANTS CLEAN THE AIR. YOU DIDN'T THINK TREES WERE THE ONLY ONES TO DO THAT DID YOU?

5) SPONGELIKE PRAIRIE PLANTS SOAK UP STORM WATER AND REMOVE COMMON CITY TOXINS SO THAT YOU CAN DRINK CLEAN WATER. I'LL CHEERS TO THAT!

6) SPONGELIKE PRAIRIE PLANTS ALSO SOAK UP STORM WATER SO THAT YOUR BASEMENT DOESN'T FLOOD. CALL YOUR INSURANCE PROVIDER AND DEMAND A DISCOUNT. 

7) THEY ARE HARDY AND WELL ADAPTED TO THE SAINT LOUIS CLIMATE. WHY IS IT AGAIN THAT THEY CAN BE HARD TO FIND FOR LANDSCAPING?
