Today is National Weed Appreciation Day, but probably not the kind of weed you’re thinking of.

We’re talking about weeds like ragweed and dandelion. These plants usually get a bad rap for popping up in undesirable places.

National Weed Appreciation Day is a good time to learn more about all their benefits. Weeds are beneficial to us and the ecosystem.

Wildlife, like birds and insects, sometimes depend on their seeds for nourishment.

Some weeds are edible and nutritious while others have medician value. The next time you go outside and notice a weed, consider snapping a picture and research it.
