LaQuinta Nature Trail

The LaQuinta Nature Trail commissioned by the Department of Waterworks CF is a three and a half mile walk visualizing the history of the land from an oasis to the xeroscaping of the future. The path demonstrates how humans have shaped the land agriculturally, with a grid of palm trees shading a citrus tree in the center, colonially, with flowering bushes from the time of the Spanish, and contemporaneously with the formal clipped hedges of suburban estates. The trail ends with a snake unfolding itself made of native flowers that require almost zero watering.
