Saguaro National Park

Superintendent Name: 
Sarah Craighead
Saguaro National Park embodies the universal symbol of the Great American West. Enormous cacti, silhouetted by the setting sun, prosper in the scorching heat and desert region. Yet these majestic plants are only found in a small portion of the United States. Saguaro National Park protects some of the most impressive forests of these sub-tropical giants, on the edge of the modern City of Tucson.
