Native Flags is a participatory eco-art project created by Xavier Cortada to help rebuild our native ecosystems across the planet one yard at a time. Locally, and across the globe, plants and animals evolved together to create a unique interdependent community of organisms. We depend on this native ecosystem for food, shelter, clean water, and fresh air.
Participate by following these steps:
- Purchase a native tree.
- Buy or create a project flag
- Plant the tree and the flag in your front yard and state “I hereby reclaim this land for nature.”
- Upload photo.
- Ask your neighbor to do the same.
