ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the life and contribution of Lili Singer, director of special programs at the Theodore Payne Foundation, in preserving the native landscapes and habitats in Sunland, California. The foundation is dedicated in restoring the native habitats in the locality and educating the people about their significance. It started when horticulturist Theodore Payne started collecting seeds and promoting them. It was then that Singer followed that legacy of reviving the nature through native gardening which she held as the best approach in preserving local plants and animals by maintaining the continuity of native habitat. She is widely known through the radio program "The Garden Show" that she hosted and also being a garden consultant.
