While we were working, hikers and visitors to the restoration habitat stopped by to watch. A tour group from Israel was planning a riparian park in their home town using reclaimed water. They came by to see what a restoration area could look like and dream for the future. They were visiting both Phoenix and San Antonio searching for ideas. Everyone was thrilled by the wealth of wildlife in the area - birds of every kind, lizards, rabbits....and, of course, the monarch butterfly habitat!
Afterwards Ranger Rebecca thanked everyone for their efforts! During the summer months we'll likely see Queen butterflies laying eggs on the Desert and Narrowleaf milkweed until their cousins, the Monarch butterflies, return in the Fall.
