If you haven't experienced it yet, do visit Tohono Chul Park's new Desert Palm Oasis. They have created a reproduction of the ecology in the canyons near Guaymas, Mexico along the Gulf of California coast where 3 species of fan palms thrive. These rare palms are only found north of the border in a canyon near Yuma. At Tohono Chul you will find a pleasant, accessible walk along a stream and small pond with other plants native to to these canyons, such as Nacapule Jasmine.
