Museums in Flagstaff!



     The Arboretum at Flagstaff is a 200 acre property with over 2,500 species of plants that are native to the high desert of the Colorado Plateau. The complex is open to the public, offering tours of the property as well as the exhibition of programs featuring the wildlife of the area.

     The Arboretum was originally the home and ranch of Frances McAllister during the 1960s. It was Mrs. McAllister's dream to create an Arboretum in the Flagstaff area when she donated the land and financial endowment to create The Arboretum at Flagstaff. The property, gardens, and buildings were the private residence of Mrs. McAllister, who first arrived in Flagstaff in the 1930s. Her love of gardening in the high country of northern Arizona led to her cultivating native species of plants as well as exotic species specially suited to high and dry locations. Eventually she began sharing her beautiful gardens and research with the people of Flagstaff which led to the establishment of the Arboretum.

     In 1981, The Arboretum at Flagstaff became an official nonprofit organization to foster public education and scientific research in order to foster the appreciation and conservation of the flora of Northern Arizona and the Colorado Plateau. The Arboretum also works closely with federal agencies, land managers, and scientists to research, conserve, and recover plant species that are unique to our environment.
