The Willow Bend Gardens

Surrounding the Center are Willow Bend and Coconino County’s habitat and educational gardens made up of plants that are native to the Colorado Plateau. The gardens are maintained by the Friends of the Willow Bend Gardens, an all-volunteer group.

We offer guided tours that take you through the grounds, highlighting the unique plants and habitat featured in each garden and xeriscaping principles. Please note, this tour is offered by reservation only. Please contact Moran, (928) 779-1745 to schedule a tour.

You can also download the Garden Guide and go on a self guided tour (no cost associated).

If you would like to learn more about recent projects, enhancements, and volunteer efforts see our yearly reports below (reports written by Susan Lamb, garden volunteer coordinator/Friends of the Willow Bend Gardens).
