Observation of the Day

We are starting to see patches of blooming Showy Milkweed (Asclepias speciosa) around town. The monarch butterfly is dependent on milkweed plants because monarch caterpillars only eat milkweed. If you want to add milkweed to your home or community, visit the Northern Arizona Pollinator Habitat Initiative website to find out milkweed varieties native to Arizona and where to find seeds/starts!

The Willow Bend Nature Challenge is a fun June virtual challenge through iNaturalist, a free observation platform that can be used on your smart phone or computer. It acts as a place for people to record observations, learn how to identify organisms and interact with other enthusiasts and experts. Observations from iNaturalist also contribute to biodiversity science. Anyone can freely access and use this information.
