The Hemisfair Conservancy has an established partnership with Whole Foods Market, whose core values align with the mission of Hemisfair. As part of the global solution of creating a greater diversity of pollinator habitats in our urban landscape, Hemisfair and Whole Foods Market team members worked together to install pollinator-attracting plants at the park. The garden serves as a haven for many species of butterflies and as an educational space for all ages. The new butterfly garden has already been registered with Monarch Watch, a cooperative network of students, teachers, volunteers and researchers dedicated to the study and preservation of Monarch Butterflies. In its ongoing commitment to give back to the community, Whole Foods Market will support related educational programming curriculum offered by Hemisfair at no charge to the public.
