Eastern NM Outdoor Arboretum

In 2006 the New Mexico Soil and Water Conservation Commission provided funding to help develop the Eastern New Mexico Outdoor Arboretum with tree identification signs, installation of a drip irrigation system and replacement of some trees that had perished during the recent drought. The outdoor arboretum is located within the Agricultural Science Center at Tucumcari. A brochure is available that will provide you with a map with directions to the Agricultural Science Center and a map of the Tree Identification Walking Trail. For more information or to receive a copy of the brochure by email contact Leonard Lauriault. Contact information is below.
