Welcome to The Arboretum at Flagstaff

At 7,150 feet in elevation, The Arboretum at Flagstaff is a unique destination, specializing in plants native to the high elevation habitat of northern Arizona. We are open May through October, six days a week (closed Tuesdays). Come out with a friend and a picnic basket and have a great time!

Thank YOU!

We had a great season at the Arboretum! Thank you to all the people that visited the gardens, came to events, volunteered, donated, joined The Arb and supported YOUR Arboretum in so many ways! We feel blessed to have a community so engaged in the natural world! We are closed for the season and will reopen May 1, 2015. We look forward to seeing you again real soon!


Thank You!

The Arboretum is led by a community of people who are excited about the natural world and are active in their communities.

NEW in 2015 a shorter, more focused docent training program to learn how to give tours at the Arb, now offered twice in the Spring and Summer.
