This two-day program features some of the best and most influential destinations in Arizona. Our first stop is the Boyce Thompson Arboretum at the base of glorious Picketpost Mountain. There, we will walk the trails, set against the mountainous backdrop of the magnificent Sonoran Desert, and learn about plants native to the region as well as those from deserts throughout the world.

Then we will explore Biosphere 2, where five ecosystems—ocean with coral reef, mangrove wetlands, tropical rainforest, savannah grassland and fog desert—all exist under one roof. Finally, we will visit the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, a unique museum that blends a botanical garden, zoo, natural history museum, aquarium and art gallery in one.
