- Manage watersheds - plants which absorb heavy rain and reduce storm water runoff
- Willow Trees support 455 butterfly and moth species. Including Mourning Cloak, Red-spotted Purple, and Viceroy.
- Goldenrod support 115 species. 125 Goldenrod species occur throughout the US. Goldenrod is used by many insects and spiders and birds who feed on the seeds and insects.
