A Southwestern Garden at the Albuqurque BioPark Botanic Garden - if you're in a desert, why plant water-hungry ornamentals when you could landscape with natives already adapted to drought?
A major challenge is that many homeowner's associations require that homes maintain a grassy lawn, but hopefully if enough people start moving towards the native landscaping, more HOA will relent.
If you are interested in making your own home better wildlife habitat, check out the National Wildlife Federation's "Garden for Wildlife" certification program. Check off the items on the list that you do to provide shelter, food, and water, and you could get your own yard certified as "Wildlife Habitat." And not just homes - every school, community center, park, business campus, and basically anyplace else that has some green space should strive for this.
To say nothing of every zoo.
Wildlife needs habitat to survive and thrive - it's as simple as that. We can try to set off large areas for them, like National Parks - but I've come to believe that every little extra bit helps as well.
