Experience Biosphere 2, the world’s largest earth science laboratory, named one of the 50 must-see wonders of the world. Located near Tucson, Biosphere 2 serves as a center for research, outreach, teaching and life-long learning about Earth, its living systems, and its place in the universe. Biosphere 2 derives from the idea that it is modeled on Earth, the first biosphere. This 3.14-acre facility offers the most remarkable tour, with 7,200,000 cubic feet under sealed glass; housing biomes that include: ocean with coral reef, mangrove wetlands, tropical rainforest, Savanna grassland, and fog desert. Our 1 hour and 15-minute guided tour involves moderate walking and stair climbing. Later we’ll travel to nearby Oracle Patio Café to enjoy lunch on self, where the moderately priced menu offers soups made daily, fresh salads, delicious panini sandwiches, the most wonderful home-baked pies and cakes, and so much more. This is an amazing tour and we hope that you will join us.
