Desert Arboretum Stroll

Part of our Spring Migration Celebration

May 2025

After the Friends’ Annual meeting, we hope you’ll stay to explore the desert blooms at our Annual Desert Arboretum Stroll!  This FREE “drop-in” style event will allow visitors to experience the beauty of spring in the Chihuahuan desert while strolling through the Arboretum.  Knowledgeable volunteers will be available to answer questions about the cacti, native plants, water wise landscaping, and even the critters who call the Arboretum home.  Throughout the accessible trail, many of the cacti will be in bloom and native pollinators will be hard at work. You won’t want to miss this opportunity to view the garden at its finest!
