For a great guide to mountain planting and an idyllic setting, the Arboretum is a lovely place on the west side of Flagstaff. Docents were helpful in answering questions. It hosts delightful live music concerts on summer evenings.

Great to walk around in and enjoy gardens and plants outdoors. Very peaceful to walk around and enjoy the different plants and offer you suggestions. They also offer classes and other things.

It is a pretty setting but you can just go to one of the parks and see just about as much as you do here

The arboretum has splendid examples of the flora of the Colorado Plateau. The guide was very knowledgeable. Due to potential bad weather we stayed close to the visitors center. We saw the herb garden and I was impressed with all the types and uses of herbs. I think it was typical of the plant life that you would see while touring the area. Apparently.July and August are the best times to see this venue

Informative walking tour. Also enjoyed the wildlife presentation. The entry road is a washboard in places and lots of dust gets kicked up by the traffic.
