Students from Windsong Peace & Leadership Center in Patagonia learn how to be restorationists.
Borderlands Restoration is hosting another restoration workshop Thursday, July 25th. We will be planting 150 native pollinator-attracting plants along Harshaw Creek, northeast of Patagonia.
This is the third site of our seasonal Monsoon plantings. It is the base of Susan Wethington’s Hummingbird Monitoring Network, where interns have been monitoring the effects of our restoration efforts on hummingbird populations. Along with gathering data on hummingbirds, Borderlands looks to this site to give us information on planting without supplemental irrigation. We are hoping the Monsoon rains will bless us & our efforts to bring diversity to the landscape.
Please RSVP if you plan on joining us to experience planting with the Monsoon. We will meet near the Pollinator Garden in Patagonia’s city park at 7am. Bring water, a snack, gloves and a shovel if you have one. Be sure to wear a hat and sunscreen. We’ll work until around noon. Hope to see you soon!
