Boyce Thompson Arboretum


Experience the lush beauty of the Arizona Upland Sonoran Desert at the state’s oldest and largest botanical garden. In this hunt you will enjoy a specialized scavenger hunt designed and made at the Arboretum. With spectacular views of Picketpost Mountain, Boyce Thompson Arboretum is located in scenic Queen Creek Canyon, just 30 minutes from Mesa. Featuring plant collections from the world’s deserts, historic buildings and hidden gardens along miles of trails, the Arboretum is on the National Register of Historic Places. A haven for wildlife, the Arboretum has been called “the most enchanting” Audubon Important Birding Area in Arizona.” A percentage of proceeds from this hunt will be donated to the Arboretum for research and conservation. Have fun and feel good doing it!
