A Rare Sight

Nature & Wildlife

The mighty saguaro produces Arizona's state flower and you will see plenty of the white blossom here. You’ll also find cacti of every size and shape in the state’s desert areas and thick green forests create canopies in higher elevations.

It’s difficult to beat the diversity in Arizona’s flora and fauna – and sheer beauty. The state’s great range of elevations – up to 11,500’ – contribute to this incredible variation. With a variety of ways to get up close to nature, Arizona is an outdoor haven. Or, consider participating in an ecotourism or volunteer vacation – the perfect way to enjoy, and preserve, this stunning state.
