"The Mission of Boyce Thompson Arboretum is to instill in people an appreciation of plants through the fostering of educational, recreational, research, and conservation opportunities associated with arid-land plants."
As you approach the Arboretum on Highway 60, you will see towering Picketpost Mountain dominating the southern horizon. The Arboretum brings together plants from the planet's many varied deserts and dry lands displaying them alongside unspoiled examples of the native Sonoran Desert vegetation.
