Habitat Heroes Giving Back To The Community

Community volunteers & corporate sponsors build habitat hero garden for Fort Collins homeless

Generous corporate partners with Leadership Fort Collins team 'Mad Dogs' raised more than $6,000 to give the existing garden at the Sister Mary Alice Murphy Center for Hope a makeover, and to transform it into a habitat for pollinators and birds. Twenty-four volunteers planted 220 native plants, installed an irrigation system, a shade sail, and rock benches for guests to take a break from life's troubles. "It can be really powerful when you're between homes to have a place to land--the garden gets to catch people," says Sarah, Garden Director of The Growing Project. There is something to be said for the power of business and the positive affect it can have on our communities. Audubon Rockies is eager to partner with businesses to build stronger communities, and offers a Corporate Sponsorship Package for companies, like those of the Sister Mary Alice Murphy project, who want to make a difference in our local landscapes and lives.
