Wildlife needs the community’s help. Human activity has diminished their habitats. Butterflies and other pollinators are pushed into ever-shrinking spaces.
Irving residents, businesses and apartment complexes, schools, faith-based organizations can participate in Irving's Garden For Wildlife program by building home gardens, business landscapes and public outdoor spaces that provide food, cover, places to raise young, access to water and use of sustainable gardening practices.
Find a sunny spot in the garden, and invite wildlife back by planting a simple garden habitat.
Here is a partial list of plants that will attract pollinators:
