The Sonoran Desert is one of the most ecologically diverse deserts in the world with more than 2,000 native plant species and hundreds of wildlife species. Special adaptations have allowed plants and animals to survive and thrive in this desert climate for thousands of years. Funded by the Arizona Game and Fish Department Heritage Fund Grant, this guide and the accompanying educational signage at the Glendale Xeriscape Demonstration Garden are designed to help you create and sustain a wildlife-friendly garden. The guide is a good resource for gardens that want to better understand how to design and educate the public on the importance of pollinators.
