The NPS Harpers Ferry Center published this Youtube video encouraging Tucsonans to join the revolution ... a stewardship revolution. The video includes narrations by the late, great Mardy "Grandmother of the Conservation Movement" Murie. There are great shots of our desert wildlife and local busy intersections.
Join the residents of Tucson as they mobilize to protect their neighboring community, the Saguaro Wilderness. Located just outside the city, Saguaro National Park and its Sonoran Desert have become a source of pride for Tucsonans and is a celebrated part of the city's collective identity. As this fragile ecosystem becomes ever more endangered, the people of Tucson come together and rally around their role as stewards of this backyard wilderness.
The two-minute clip perfectly captures the Old Pueblo and our unrivaled desert surroundings:
