Ajo, Arizona Celebrates Community Wildlife Habitat Certification
Ajo is located in the heart of the Sonoran desert in southwestern Arizona and is the gateway community to Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument. As part of their outreach, the Community Wildlife Habitat team helped create a Certified Wildlife Habitat® garden at the monument’s Kris Eggle Visitor Center. They also worked to create habitat gardens at Ajo Elementary School and Triangle Park, as well as the Curley School artisan center.
This was truly a community-wide effort. All over town, one can find the NWF Certified Wildlife Habitat signs displayed by proud homeowners on their front fences.A certification ceremony was held at the city’s annual Sonoran Shindig and Pima County Commissioner Sharon Bronson traveled from Tucson for the ceremony. Team leader Vivian Sartori accepted the certificate for the town and it will be on display in the Ajo Library.
Congratulations to Ajo and the Community Wildlife Habitat team!
