What are Ellen Stofan's plans for the nation's most visited museum?
Across the nation, lawns cover area eight times the size of New Jersey. And while those lawns are green, they do little to support the local ecosystem. One entomologist says we’ve paved and re-planted and farmed so much of the country that there are no longer enough native plants to support the biodiversity we humans need to survive. We’ll explore the role native plants play in the ecosystem and the reasons to re-introduce them into your yard.
