Arboretum volunteers narrate the history of Arizona's oldest and largest botanical garden and point out colorful plants and birds during guided nature walks. Join a relaxed walk to observe seasonal changes with our engaging tour guide Bobbi Lancaster, and find out what's new around the Arboretum trails each week.


In addition to a basic overview of BTA history tour audiences will hear what wildlife has been seen lately, hotspots to look for resident birds, and where to enjoy the most sweeping and panoramic views of the Queen Creek riparian area. Guided walks along the 1.5-mile main trail include fun facts about Arboretum history while learning more about the Arboretum's plants, resident critters and geology.

Event repeats September 30 at 8:30 am; October 14, October 21, November 11, November 18, and November 25 at 10:00 am; December 2, December 9, December 16, December 23, and December 30 at 11:00 am.
