Urban sprawl, wasteful water use, increasingly ferocious wildfires, changing weather patterns, chronic political infighting.

One law, the Endangered Species Act, serves as the primary safety net for protecting wildlife driven to the brink.
After noting that gardening with wildflowers is a growing environmentally-conscious trend, the coauthors of Prairie Directory of North America list native alternatives to nonnative plants. They recommend planting butterfly milkweed and orange coneflowers instead of orange daylilies that are naturalized/invasive in the Midwest.
