Kyle Lybarger – Native Habitat Project

Join the Little Garden Club for a special talk from guest speaker Kyle Lybarger, content educator and founder of the Native Habitat Project–which aims to educate and support habitat restoration efforts across Alabama.

Born and raised in Morgan county, Kyle has been exploring the outdoors for as long as he can remember. His passion for wildlife led him to pursue a forestry degree from Alabama A&M. After college he gained an interest in the overlooked grasslands of North Alabama which pushed him to start educating through social media. He has since become a native plant social media sensation, on his TikTok account @nativeplanttok and on Instagram (@nativehabitatproject).

He has specific interest in restoring Alabama’s prairies and is credited with finding purple milkweed in Alabama and documenting Durand Oak, a plant that typically thrives in prairie settings. He is now bringing his passion into the schools with a recent grant to turn a former prairie into an outdoor classroom in his hometown of Hartselle.
