Restoration for Hummingbirds
How many flowers does a hummingbird need? This is one of the questions Borderlands Restoration is working to answer, with a grant from WHP.
The project, "Nectar Landscape and Restoration Planting Impacts on Hummingbirds in Southern Arizona" began with restoration plantings. Staff are now monitoring nectar producing plants to examine the probability of floral occurrence and plant and hummingbird phenology. The results of this project will be used to encourage pollinator gardens and restoration projects that better support hummingbirds.
