The Terry Hershey Memorial Garden is just one example of how our Community Naturalists—along with partners and volunteers—are making a tangible difference for birds and people in southwest Colorado. In a collaborative effort, members from several local conservation and gardening groups came together to install a Habitat Hero garden at the Geothermal Greenhouse Partnership in downtown Pagosa Springs. The garden features more than 415 native plants from more than 40 different species. Its purpose is to showcase the need to plant species that create ecological connectivity and support birds and other pollinators. Now, it’s a place for the community to enjoy and discover the beauty of native gardens and the wildlife that thrive because of them. Visit the garden in downtown Pagosa Springs and learn more about bird-friendly gardening through our Habitat Hero resources.
