I enjoyed them often from their beginnings about 2005 till we moved away in 2016.

it was way more pristine before dove mountain destroyed it !!!!!

Then enjoy the destruction of the Sonoran desert all around the base of them.

Love those crested saguaros!

Loved riding through the park. Lived in Tucson for 13yrs

What better way to celebrate Earth Day than planting Saguaros with Tucson Audubon Society? 🌵 Just this year, theyve planted an impressive 681 young Saguaros in the Tortolita Preserve, 410 in Tortolita Mountain Park and 34 more at the El Rio Preserve. 

Currently, theyre looking for 10 volunteers to join them on May 13 and 30 at the Wild Burro Trailhead from 9 -11 am to help to establish the next generation of our majestic desert giants. For more information, visit

With its unique, spiky appearance, Yucca elata, or the soaptree yucca, can be found throughout the Southwest and into Northern Mexico. From flowers and leaves to the root, trunk and sap, every piece of the yucca has been used by native people to make soap, baskets, ropes, clothing and more. 🌸🪴 

The Department of Forestry and Fire Management hosts a program called Arizonas Magnificent Trees, which spotlights the states largest, oldest and most important specimens. Until recently, a 30-foot soaptree yucca just north of Oro Valley held the title for the largest yucca in the U.S.
