Conserve - Educate - Inspire

We teamed up with community partners to build a demonstration garden at Crail Ranch using native plants that are wildlife friendly, water wise, and preserving of the historic landscape.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Native plants: 

  • Are adapted to local conditions, requiring no fertilizer or pesticides.

  • Require less watering to thrive and can help control stormwater runoff.

  • Improve air quality by reducing area for mowing and sequestering carbon.

  • Provide food and shelter for wildlife and support pollinators.

Crail Gardens are located at the Historic Crail Ranch, 2100 Spotted Elk Rd, Big Sky, and are open for touring during daylight hours 7 days a week.

Native plants are the foundation of the food web and vital for sustaining ecosystems.

In our 2nd full growing season, a white-crowned sparrow nested and successfully reared her young among the prairie sage in our largest garden.
