Evans Creek

     Our mission is to educate our community, to inspire       conservation, and demonstrate how both native               and non-native flora and fauna can survive in an             arid, high desert environment. Over 4,000 native             and adaptive plant species are on display within the       gardens. Visit during the spring and summer to see         the flowers come alive and put on a dazzling display,       or in the fall as the trees show their true colors. Take your time and explore; like a museum’s rotating exhibits, changing seasons mean no two visits at the Arboretum are the same.
