Share on Facebook

Meet the inhabitants of the Sonoran Desert – javelina, roadrunners, gila monsters, boojum trees, and ocotillos. From thunderstorms and flash floods to snow on the saguaros, witness the spectacular sights and sounds of the Sonoran Desert, which includes Saguaro National Park and Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument.

Filmed entirely in the Sonoran Desert! Encompassing almost 100,000 square miles from the Southwestern United States (Arizona and California) and Northwestern New Mexico (Sonora, Baja California, and Baja California Sur), no other desert in the world encompasses such an incredible diversity. The Sonoran Desert is home to at least 60 species of mammals, more than 350 bird species, 20 amphibians, some 100 reptiles, and about 30 species of native fish. More than 2,000 species of plants have been identified in the Sonoran Desert and is the only place on Earth where the famed saguaro cactus exists.

Showings at 12 PM & 2 PM.
