Wednesday, August 8
2 PM only

Explore the human and natural history of the cactus forest at the foot of the Rincon Mountains with Jeff Wallner, park guide at Saguaro National Park. This collection of saguaros inspired the initial creation of Saguaro National Monument, now Saguaro National Park, in 1933. Historic photographs of this stand of giant cacti tell only half the story of what is happening to this iconic desert species. Research at Saguaro National Park gives us insight into what has happened to the saguaros and what might be expected in the future.


To request a reservation, please call 520-622-6014 during business hours beginning one week prior to the event.
