Fall is the time to plant for birds and pollinators, and we’ve got you covered!
Audubon’s fall plant starts on Saturday October 9 and continues until we run out of plants. Our inventory includes Desert Milkweed and Chuparosa in five-gallon pots and other favorites such as Desert Marigold, Red Justicia, Mexican Evening Primrose, and three species of Penstemon in the one gallon size. These beauties will delight you and your yard visitors (both feathered and otherwise) for years to come so get yours before we run out.
Plants can be purchased at the Nina Mason Pulliam Rio Salado Audubon Center during business hours: 9am to 4pm Tuesday through Friday, 8am to 1pm on Saturdays. Or, you can join us at one of our special events!
Planting native plants is one of the best things individuals can do to help the planet. Added bonus: it’s fun! We hope to see you soon and happy gardening!
Did you know that you can provide critical habitat for Arizona's wildlife in your own backyard? By planting native flowering plants, trees, and shrubs, you can become part of the growing movement to create pockets of habitat within the city that are essential to the survival of our native birds, butterflies, bees, and more! Learn about what to plant, where to get them, and which birds you're benefiting with Audubon's Plants for Birds database.
