Sagauaros need protecting. They are an iconic symbol of America and the "wild west" instantly recognized and beloved around the world.
Saguaro National Park is an amazing place.. It is a prime example of what southern AZ. is all about. From the variety of cactus to the multitude of wild life, guests are always impressed.
I recently took my seven-year-old granddaughter to Tucson for the first time. I couldn't wait to take her out to Saguaro National Park. We had the best time! The education center is excellent. She requested that we go back the next day, which we did! She earned her Junior Ranger badge. The staff made her feel so special. She is already planning our next trip to Arizona. I told her I wanted to take her to the Grand Canyon. She said no she wants to stay around Tucson so we can go hike at Saguaro National Park!
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
Keep up the great work. As a winter visitor to Tucson we love spending time in the park, lots of activities and trails are well maintained.
It is excellent place to hiking and preserve. Unfortunately I can not help because I live so far away.

Wonderful organization. So happy they are a wonderful part of the park
Friend's of Saguaro National Park is a wonderful organization that genuinely supports and cares for Tucson's backyard Saguaro National Park. All the board members are extremely involved in the park' s events, well being and success. I have personally witnessed this Friend's group join together in order to provide Saguaro NP with the support needed for youth intiatives, local community events, resource management projects and staff needs. It is an awesome organization and Saguaro National Park is lucky to have them as friends!

Any time that we have out of town visitors, we make certain to take them to Saguaro National Park. It is a prime example of what southern AZ. is all about. From the variety of cactus to the multitude of wild life, guests are always impressed.
The park is safe and clean and full of so many of nature's treasures. A trip to Tucson isn't complete without seeing both parks.
