Daily Guided Tours at Boyce Thompson Arboretum
Volunteers at the UA's Boyce Thompson Arboretum in Superior will narrate the history of Arizona's oldest and largest botanical garden and point out colorful plants and birds during daily guided nature walks. Join a relaxed walk to observe seasonal changes. Engaging tour guides Rich and Cindy live onsite, so they 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 find 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 for adults, $5 children ages 5-12, free to arboretum members and Arizona State Parks pass-holders.
