The Saguaro Canyon Story
Saguaro Canyon refers to Saguaro National Park, established in 1994 just outside Tucson, Arizona. The national park seeks to conserve fine tracts of the Sonoran Desert, including ranges of significant hills: the Tucson Mountains in the west and the Rincon Mountains in the east.
The park gets its name from the Saguaro, an enormous endangered cacti native to portions of the Southwest and Northern Mexico, and a Spanish mispronunciation of the original Native American name. The Saguaro cactus holds a special place in the heart of many as the universal symbol of the American West.
Saguaros are slow growing, taking up to 75 years to develop a side shoot. Some may live for more than 200 years. Native peoples have used the Saguaro in the construction, and native birds have used holes in the cacti for shelter. The Saguaro begins flowering at about 35 years of age, and is pollinated by bats, birds, and insects. The Saguaro blossom is the state flower of Arizona.
Many other kinds of cactus, including barrel, cholla, and prickly pear, are also abundant in the region. Of the great variety of wildlife in the canyon lands, three endangered species of animals call the terrain home: the Mexican Spotted Owl, Sonoran Tiger Salamander, and Lesser Long-nosed Bat.
