Description

The Desert Botanical Garden began in the 1930s with the goal of preserving the area's pristine desert environment. Today, the garden helps save endangered plants, with the focus still on native flora and special emphasis on succulents. The cactus collection is world-renowned and between the months of March through May, the seasonal blooms are spectacular. The garden also hosts numerous events throughout the year which include the popular 'Butterfly Habitat', the 'Luminarias' during the holiday season and rotating sculpture exhibits from the world-renowned glass artist Dale Chihuly. Don't forget your hat and sunscreen during the summer months.
