When it comes to flora and fauna, it’s difficult to beat the diversity – and sheer beauty – of Arizona. You’ll find cacti of every size and shape in the state’s desert areas, while thick green forests create canopies filled with mountain creatures in higher elevations.
Explore a botanical garden or arboretum. See some of the most beautiful bird migrations in the country – including as many as 17 varieties of hummingbirds. You could even participate in an ecotourism or volunteer vacation – the perfect way to enjoy, and preserve, this beautiful state.
