Yuma Conservation Garden provides environmental education encouraging responsible stewardship of Yuma's natural resources.

The Yuma Conservation Garden is a community treasure of Sonoran Desert flora and fauna that provides visitors with opportunities to learn about the area’s unique desert landscape and enjoy its stunning natural beauty. It was founded in the 1950s in a spirit of friendship, philanthropy and volunteerism that continues to nurture the Garden today. Free to the public, the Garden is recognized by the Arizona State Land Department as an Education Center and by the Arizona Department of Game and Fish as a natural habitat.

The Garden’s Environmental Education Center is an outdoor laboratory and classroom that has hosted thousands of local school students and their teachers over the years, providing a protected and interpreted setting in which to view and study desert ecology. The Center offers more than 50 engaging, experiential lesson plans that meet State of Arizona academic standards, and foster respect and appreciation for the Earth’s natural resources while teaching skills in language, math, science, and the arts.

An oasis for family relaxation, recreation and fun, the Garden offers walking trails, a Desert Tortoise habitat, a watershed demonstration area, a waterfall, a natural amphitheater, a sand tracking box for examining animal prints, as well as a display of antique farm machinery used in the local agriculture industry. Generations of children have visited the Garden’s beloved duck pond and now return with their children and grandchildren.
