Boyce Thompson Arboretum

Superior, AZ

Overview

"The mission of Boyce Thompson Arboretum is to inspire appreciation and stewardship of desert plants, wildlife, and ecosystems through education, research, and conservation."
An Arboretum is a botanical garden that focuses on trees and other woody plants. Although Colonel William Boyce Thompson’s original intent was to plant trees (hence the name, Arboretum), he soon realized that all types of plants from deserts around the world should be included, studied, conserved, and made available to the public.

Boyce Thompson Southwestern Arboretum was founded April 1, 1924, incorporated as Arizona’s first nonprofit research institution October 5, 1927, and officially dedicated and opened to the public April 6 1929.
