Our Next Addition

The Cactus & Succulent Garden

Your Arboretum is growing! 

Living in the driest state in the nation where droughts are common, this garden will demonstrate an alternative to traditional landscaping by introducing low water use plants and desert landscaping. It will show home owners how to create a beautiful landscape using flowering cactus and succulents that require very little water.

Your charitable donations make this and other growth possible.
