It Takes a Community to Raise a Saguaro Presentation. We all love our gentle giants that dot the desert in this town, but do you know what it takes for a saguaro to grow? Head out to Saguaro National Park East where the experts will present the life cycle of the mighty saguaro from seed to the sad day they topple over. This 30 minute presentation will detail how the giant cacti interact with their desert ecosystem.  11 a.m. Rincon Mountain Visitor Center (Saguaro East) 3693 South Old Spanish Trail. Details here.
