Help us count and identify species in southern Arizona! National Geographic and the National Park Service are hosting a BioBlitz in Saguaro National Park outside Tucson, Arizona on October 21-22, 2011. The iconic saguaro cactus dots the landscape of this national park in southern Arizona, just 50 miles from the Mexican border. From lowland Sonoran desert landscapes to isolated sky islands dominated by conifer forests, Saguaro National Park is home to a diverse community of organisms. Note: Since we are working with partners on this mission, the National Geographic Society and the National Park Service, special Terms apply to submissions to this mission. By joining this mission you agree to the Terms & Conditions.
