Plant Lists for Wildlife:: Southwest

 

Here you will find plant lists for wildlife including birds, butterflies pollinators and even mammals. They mostly all come from universities, extension services, cities or other organizations and they are plant lists for wildlife, not just native plant lists. If you have a list or resource that’s not listed, please send it to me by using the contact form (also found in the pages drop down menu) and I’ll be happy to add it.

You can find regional landscaping for wildlife guides and documents, many which accompany these documents under the ‘Pages’ menu under ‘Landscape for Wildlife‘.
