In North America, there are more than 200 orchid species, and more than half of them are endangered or threatened. The Canelo Hills ladies’-tresses orchid, Spiranthes delitescens, which is only known to grow in five localities in southern Arizona, was described as a new species in 1990 and listed as an endangered species in 1997.
The Desert Botanical Garden’s longest-running tradition is Las Noches de las Luminarias (Luminaria). On a cold December night back in 1978, volunteers and staff worked to light 700 luminarias and welcome 600 guests for a one-night experience at the Garden.
In 1997, the Garden launched the Desert Landscape Certificate School program that provided education on all aspects of desert landscape installation and maintenance. The program was later redesigned and a new model has been piloted and will be launched in the spring of 2017.
