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

Willow Bend Environmental Education Center is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded by the Coconino Natural Resource Conservation District.

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

Willow Bend is located within Coconino County's Sawmill Park. Certified as “backyard wildlife habitat” by the National Wildlife Federation, the gardens feature a small pond and plants native to the Colorado Plateau — unique communities such as desert scrub, meadow, forest, and a rainwater terrace garden.
