The iconic Saguaro cactus is a keystone species of the Sonoran Desert, a unique area found primarily in Mexico but stretching north into southern Arizona. Marilyn Latta has spent part of the last five winters near Tucson exploring the area and learning about the relationships between the plants, birds and other wildlife that survive in this extreme desert environment. From Roadrunners to rattlers, and saguaros to chia plants, join Marilyn to learn more about this diverse and fascinating area.
