I enjoyed the descriptions of the plants and seeing what they had. It was convenient as I was going to the library and stopped to see what the plant life was all about.

Short tour, but very enjoyable. Loved the school room with the dolls, reminded me of something my daughter would have set up 20 yrs ago. The lady on the desk was very nice and refered us to Auntie Em's miniatures for more dollhouse inspiration as well as the huge museum in Tucson.

We love this place and try to come every other month or so in cooler weather just to have a morning walk and look for wildlife. It is very affordable to visit and if the low entrance fee bothers you for a short walk in nature, they have every third Saturday free. They have a very small museum & gift shop...the highlight of it all is the wonderful nature walk along the hill. We've come at various times and seasons as the petroglyphs change and can become clearer depending on when you go.
