BTA is pleased to offer a special weekend June 23-24 with back-to-back guided morning walks which will explore the Curandero Trail and our Herb Garden during the earliest and coolest hours while our gardens are most pleasant – followed by workshops in the air-conditioned lecture room where the herbalist will coach enrollees Saturday (Desert Herbs to Support the Immune System) noon to 3 p.m. and Sunday (Allergies and Desert Plant Allies) 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

  Feather’s guided walks will begin each morning at 6:30 a.m. and last about 90 minutes; they’re included with $12.50 admission; free to BTA annual members and AZ State Parks pass-holders. Classes each day are $30, with pre-registration required.

  “I’m excited to spend the weekend at the Arboretum and show visitors the diverse plants along the Curandero Trail and in the Herb Garden,” she said. “There are so many medicals around the Arboretum, we might also wander over to the scent garden (within the Children’s Garden); the demonstration garden, the Australian collection, with those marvelous and healing eucalyptus trees!”
