A new demonstration garden near El Tovar introduces visitors to the vast array of Grand Canyon botanical diversity right on the South Rim. With thousands of plant species, Grand Canyon is more diverse than any other National Park. From the spruce-fir forests of the North Rim to the mesquite and acacia dominated depths of the canyon over 5,000 vertical feet below, exploring Grand Canyon flora takes one on a botanical journey the equivalent of an expedition from Canada to Mexico.
Grand Canyon Conservancy supporters provided "seed" funds for construction, and volunteers return each season to plant and nurture the garden.
Location: The Demonstration Garden is located in the South Rim Historic District, between El Tovar's dining room porch and the rim.
