The Garden is composed of 5 trails illustrating topics such as conservation, desert living, plants and people of the Sonoran Desert and desert wildflowers. The Cactus & Succulent Galleries feature displays of cacti and succulents presenting the great diversity of form, texture, and color found in these collections.
