A new garden has come to Ninos ParkwayThis year, the Natomas Garden & Arts Club received funding from a SMUD Shine Award to create 1/4 acre of pollinator habitat along Ninos Parkway in the South Natomas area of Sacramento. This new garden has been created with support from the SMUD Shine Program, Sacramento Valley California Native Plant Society, MiridaeLabs, Natomas Rotary Club, Councilman Jeff Harris and the Xerces Society! The new “Grassland Garden”, located near Rio Tierra Jr High School, will feature drought-tolerant native plants that can be found in California’s native grasslands. The Grassland Garden will provide vital habitat for monarch butterflies and other pollinators, as well as birds and other wildlife. Many of the plants were chosen because they are valuable to pollinators and other wildlife. For example, the garden contains two species of milkweed, the plant that monarch caterpillars need to feed on to mature into adults. Purple Needle Grass
