Located 25 miles northwest of Tucson, Ironwood Forest National Monument safeguards an incredible landscape recognized for its rugged scenery, biological diversity, and cultural legacy. The monument contains the highest density of desert ironwood trees ever recorded, the northernmost population of elephant trees, the endangered Nichols turk’s head cactus, and one of the last remaining herds of desert bighorn sheep in the Tucson area. Come learn more about this desert treasure in our own backyard and about how you can help protect it.
