Gibson Mariposa Butterfly Park – Habitat Plant Palette

We specialize in the inclusion of native habitat and sustainable design principles. We consider water conservation, habitat restoration, water quality improvements, outdoor educational opportunities, and air quality in our planning.

Many of the communities that Amigos serves are in habitat sensitive areas along rivers of the Los Angeles Basin. We have been instrumental in restoring these places for the benefit of the local people and environmental integrity.

Our landscape designers take special care in selecting native drought-tolerant plants that will help a city or agency reduce its water budget and learn about options for water conservation in public spaces.
