The Arboretum at Flagstaff’s Mission is to increase the understanding, appreciation, and conservation of plants and plant communities native to the Colorado Plateau. We strive to:
- Identify, evaluate, display, and introduce plants adaptable to the climatic and soil conditions of the Flagstaff environment
- Seek through scientific research innovative solutions to conservation issues of this high altitude environment
- Develop educational programs that increase the understanding of the need for wise stewardship of our natural environment.
