Review for FRIENDS OF SAGUARO NATIONAL PARK INC, Tucson, AZ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have worked with the Friends since they started in 1997. They are well-run and efficient, and they make a huge difference by providing support to make Saguaro National Park, outside Tucson, Arizona, one of the best parks in the nation. One of their current projects, studying Gila monster lizards, will contribute greatly to conservation of this sensitive and little-known reptile.

Review for FRIENDS OF SAGUARO NATIONAL PARK INC, Tucson, AZ, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I've worked with the Friends of Saguaro National Park almost since their inception - the last nine years, I've been an advisor to their board. They are a group of dedicated supporters who go out of their way to raise money to support park programs and allow Saguaro National Park to be the best that it can be. They have supported numerous resource inventories and studies in the park--for example, an in-depth inventory of the Madrona riparian area, studies of black bears, desert tortoises and gila monsters, and a once-a-decade inventory of saguaro cactus plants. They have a very low overhead so I know my money is going into programs.

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & I served as an advisor to the Board.
