Sustainable Home & Garden Tour

The Sustainability Program collaborates with the Coconino County Sustainable Building Program to organize the Sustainable Home and Garden Tour, a free educational event which happens each fall. The tour is self guided and starts at Willow Bend Environmental Education Center. There, you will receive a tour packet with all addresses, maps and information on each location. Most tour locations implement water conservation, solar power, rainwater collection, xeriscaping, composting, passive solar design, and others. Locations will have either the homeowner/builder and/or an expert to educate and answer your questions

The City hosts a community celebration every April as a way to recognize and celebrate Flagstaff's commitment to the natural environment. The City partners with several community organizations, like Arizona Conservation Corps, to host a community clean up before the celebration.
