As homeschoolers from Canada, we were thrilled to find that there was a homeschool field trip scheduled when we were visiting. We joined in and met some other families, and spent a lovely day exploring trees and plants from all over. The kids wondered how there could be an arboretum in the desert, now they know.

Plenty to do! Wear good walking shoes, take water. Lots of places to sit to rest, and there is a high trail and a low trail. We took the low trail.

Stunning views! Make sure to take a camera.

Nice collection. Pretty well maintained. Lot of water used in the desert. Especially for a University claiming to be the leader in sustainabilty. The grass is important, especially for the football field. Do not want it to go to waste in the farms to the West of town or in California.
