Tohono Chul Celebrates the Nature of the Sonoran Desert
A visit to the gardens of Tohono Chul can last half an hour or become an all day experience. Our gardens demonstrate our goal of creating spaces of beauty that attract wildlife, utilizing native and adapted plants. The Park’s plantings have been designed especially to attract butterflies and hummingbirds, which will be seen throughout our gardens.
The gardens also reflect the wide range of habitats in the Sonoran Desert, including riparian areas and the elusive desert palm canyons. The Sonoran Desert is much more than saguaros and prickly pears.
Our greenhouse propagates native, arid-adapted and cold-hardy plants to be used throughout the Tucson landscape. It’s just one of the many things we do to help the nature of the Sonoran Desert.
