One of the country's largest collections of mountain wildflowers may be seen; peak wildflower season is July through August. A nature trail traverses meadows and a ponderosa pine forest. Sixteen colorful native butterfly species can be seen in the Butterfly House. A guided garden tour is offered, and a presentation features falcons, hawks and owls native to the Southwest.
