Meet Amy Yarger, Director of Horticulture
Amy has been with Butterfly Pavilion since May of 2000! She currently leads Butterfly Pavilion’s local pollinator habitat initiatives, such as the Baseline Pollinator District and the Urban Prairies Project, which restores habitat in urban and suburban green spaces in Westminster and Broomfield. Amy has also installed pollinator habitat gardens throughout the community at locations such as Sprout City Farms, Clear Creek Valley Park and Good Samaritan Hospital. Her articles have been published in Colorado Gardener, Aquilegia and the journal for the Association for Zoological Horticulture. Through habitat gardening and education, Amy hopes to create a closer connection to nature and a greater understanding about the need for biodiversity locally and globally.
