Head Out of Town: Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix

The Liv Northgate Blog is heading out of Gilbert, AZ to feature one of our favorite places in Phoenix this month: the Desert Botanical Garden. A traditional botanical garden might be difficult to sustain in Arizona’s arid weather, but the Desert Botanical Garden displays some of our favorite climate-friendly plants. You’ll love walking through the Desert Botanical Garden sometime this month.


Head out onto the trails at the Desert Botanical Garden sometime this month. You’ll love traveling the different trails of the Garden. The trails include the Desert Discovery Loop Trail, the Plants & People of the Sonoran Desert Loop Trail, the Sonoran Desert Nature Loop Trail, and the Harriet K. Maxwell Desert Wildflower Loop Trail. Traverse any of these trails before the month is through.


Remember to visit the Garden again next month. The Garden is opening an “expanded, new butterfly exhibit will incorporate a caterpillar nursery and emergence chamber to let visitors view all stages of a butterfly’s life. The exhibit will feature significant educational displays about the butterfly life cycle, pollination and how to create a butterfly friendly garden.” You can find more details on the new butterfly garden here.


If you would like to learn more about the Desert Botanical Garden, schedule a tour of the garden. You can schedule group and individual tours or participate in an activity like the Ask a Gardener activities and the Garden Flashlight Tours. Find out more about the different tours available and how to schedule them here.  


Several events are coming to the Garden this year include:
