Willow Bend Environmental Education Center

703 East Sawmill Road
Flagstaff, AZ 86001


Our goal is to help people make mindful choices that are healthier for themselves, our community, and the planet

About us: 

We lead by example with our passive-solar, straw-bale education center, as well as by our low-water native gardens, alternatively fueled vehicle, on-demand water heater, energy star office equipment, energy-efficient lighting, composting, and more.

Willow Bend is located at Flagstaff’s Sawmill Park, part of Coconino County Parks & Recreation Department. Certified as “backyard wildlife habitat” by the National Wildlife Federation, our gardens feature a small pond and plants native to the Colorado Plateau — unique communities such as desert scrub, meadow, forest, and native edible and heritage crops.
