I live in Vermont, so the landscape and ecology at Saguaro are quite a bit different from what I am accustomed to. I have been to the park a handful of times, and each time have come away with an appreciate for the unique flora and fauna. That I have been able to understand so much of this exotic environment is a reflection of Saguaro's superbly organized, well-staffed visitor outreach, both in the center established for that purpose and in every interaction with the park's staff and volunteers. I am well aware of the effects of global climate change, and therefore I am deeply concerned about the fate of the park's wildlife as the water table drops and their only recourse is to retreat to higher and higher ground in order to survive. They can't survive if they are stuck unconnected islands. Those who direct the park and ensure the well-being of its animals are, thankfully, addressing these very issues every day in every way they can. I am happy to be able to support them. Thanks to the US government too for preserving places like Saguaro for all of us to enjoy.

The annual fund-raising was so well organized. My questions were answered in a timely manner, and when I arrived, people knew who I was. It is such a pleasure to give directions to our house by saying, "We are just down the road 5 miles from Saguaro Park East". I have observed their programs with children and have been impressed.

I grew up in Tucson right at the edge of the Saguaro National Park. After many years, I returned to the park in fall of 2011 to participate in the National Geographic BioBlitz. I was grateful to find a park that has been beautifully cared for with outstanding facilities and faculty made possible with the support of the Friends of Saguaro National Park. With the rate that Tucson is developing and spreading I would imagine that, had it not been for Saguaro National Park, the Tucson mountains East and West would be nothing but housing and resort developments. This park contains plant life and species found few other places on Earth and fragile ecosystem that calls for the very special care that it is given. I am grateful that I have the Saguaro National Park to return to, as it was when I was a child. I credit Friends of Saguaro National Park and their mission to preserve this very special place.

It is one of the best places in Tucson, I actually lived on spanish trail just so I could go to the monupent. I mainly ride a bicycle. But just going there gives me great joy. I bring my family from out of town there as it one the best places to demonstrate why I love being in Tucson. dj

Saguaro is a great national park especially for families. Your kids will love the interactive exhibits at the visitor center but more importantly they make it so easy to enjoy the great outdoors and learn more about the history, geography, and plant and animal life that make the park such a treasure.

I have visited Saguaro National Park on several occasions and have always had a great time. Not only is the park beautiful, but their programs and interpretive center are really extraordinary.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The services available within the park that help guide visitors, given the complexity of the ecology and history.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

find someway to increase the publicity and funding available ... I am only sorry that I did not know about this park until three years ago, and they unfortunately do not receive the same publicity as some of the larger, more established parks.
