One of the newest trails on the refuge, this arboretum is a living classroom with almost entirely native cactus, grasses and shrubs.

It was originally designed to showcase regional, xeric plants that would inspire visitors to plant low water alternatives to water intensive lawns and non-native species. A refuge for plants, the arboretum allows visitors the opportunity to see the incredible diversity of the Northern Chihuahuan desert.
