Plants and Animals

WildlifeThe Flagstaff area is rich in natural plant communities and wildlife. Neighborhoods mingle with wildlife linkages conserved in national forest and state trust lands, City Open Space, and terrain that is too steep or unstable for construction. The tributaries and main stems of the Rio de Flag and Walnut Creek are active linkages for wildlife as well, and even the most urban of our neighborhoods are home to wildlife from birds to foxes, reptiles to deer. Consider Gardening in Harmony with Nature to help maintain connectivity between wild communities of plants and animals and to fully experience the joy and amazement of living in harmony with nature.
