facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

You may have walked the Boyce Thompson Arboretum trails a dozen times and never crossed paths with the Galapagos Tortoise pens. Take a moment to scan the horizon above Picket Post Mountain, can you imagine cavalry soldiers operating a heliograph in the late 1800s?

Learn about the life and times of Colonel William Boyce Thompson and his Arboretum on a walking tour guided by Phoenix historian Sylvia Lee. Walks typically last about 90-minutes, departing at 10 a.m. from the Visitor Center breezeway.

Walks are included with daily admission of $9 for adults, $4.50 ages 5-12. Read about other events and preview the fall color online at AG.Arizona.edu/BTA. (Superior Sun photo)
