Hello gardening enthusiasts! This site is dedicated to the discovery of pollinators and the supporting web of plants and other characters in Arizona and New Mexico.

This is a visual site, so plants and insects are presented as photos, allowing you to quickly scan to find what you’re looking for.

As you explore this site, hover your mouse over titles, plant and insect names, and photo captions – many of them are linked to sites with additional information!

Please check out the other pages in this site for more information about pollinators and how to create a supporting habitat. Feel free to Contact Us with comments and recommendations.

Did you know? A typical saguaro can live between 100-200 years. 😯

But what about the life span of urban saguaros? Over time, the Saguaro Census can help us find out!

To formalize your pollinator efforts and support two great organizations, consider adding a sign to your garden.

Xerces Society

“The Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation is an international nonprofit organization that protects the natural world through the conservation of invertebrates and their habitats.  Our key program areas are: pollinator conservation, endangered species conservation, and reducing pesticide use and impacts. Scroll on to learn more about our work!”

Monarch Watch

“Monarch Waystations are places that provide resources necessary for monarchs to produce successive generations and sustain their migration. Without milkweeds throughout their spring and summer breeding areas in North America, monarchs would not be able to produce the successive generations that culminate in the migration each fall. Similarly, without nectar from flowers these fall migratory monarch butterflies would be unable to make their long journey to overwintering grounds in Mexico.”
