The scent of towering pines and wildflowers is intoxicating in the world's largest Ponderosa forest. Perched at a heavenly height of 7,150 feet above sea level, Flagstaff's Arboretum is home to 2,000 species of native plants. View "Live Birds of Prey" programs and learn about Arizona's native eagles, hawks, and owls. Walk through the gardens, listen to the voice of the brook and look into the faces of fish and wildlife you can't see anywhere else. Challenge yourself with a 1.2-mile nature hike where visitors can photograph local wildlife, or recount the day's lessons on a solitary bench.
