What better time to visit the new Water Conservation Garden than for the 4th of July, especially if you haven't had the chance!

The smell of lavender welcomes you into the Water Conservation Garden.


Snow Leopard Cholla

How cool is this cactus? The white spines on this cholla reflect the sun, helping to lower its temperature.

If you make it to the top of the Water Conservation Garden, not only will you be greeted with a view, but also this striking beauty.

Also at the top of the Water Conservation Garden, you won't be able to miss this vibrant beauty.


Now is the chance to see a Garden that has been newly planted, and continue to watch it grow. I hope you are as excited as we are to see how the Water Conservation Garden unfolds!
