Wildflower/Butterfly Garden

The chapter-sponsored wildflower/butterfly garden at the Sierra Vista Library is doing well, and some additional plants were added this summer. The goals of this project are to build a display garden that exemplifies Sierra Vista’s emblem of the hummingbird and echoes our surrounding natural environment and connection to the San Pedro watershed.

The next project, which will be completed shortly, is to erect a display board or kiosk that will explain the purpose of the garden, describe the advantages of developing a native plant garden, and provide information about the Arizona Native Plant Society. If you would like to donate a little of your time to expanding and maintaining the garden, please contact Doug Ripley by email or phone-520-909-3132.
