Arboretum volunteers narrate the history of Arizona's oldest and largest botanical garden; point out colorful plants and birds during daily 11 o’clock guided nature walks. Join a relaxed walk to observe seasonal changes - engaging tour guides Rich and Cindy live onsite, and know what's new around the Arboretum trails each week. In addition to a basic overview of BTA history tour audiences hear what wildlife has been seen lately, hotspots to look for resident birds, and where to enjoy the most sweeping, 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. Tours depart from the visitor center and are included with daily admission, $12.50 adults, $5 children ages 5-12, free to children under 5, free to Arboretum members and Arizona State Parks pass-holders.
