El Morro is home to a variety of plant communities from woodlands of Garry oak, ponderosa and pinion pines, and three species of junipers, to sprawling shortgrass prairies. The monument also is home to an array of wildflowers that bloom all through the spring, summer and fall. Around the pond at the base of El Morro you can even find cattails!

It is estimated that the mesa-top pueblo at El Morro National Monument contained about 875 rooms. However to see it is deceiving—only a small corner of the pueblo was ever excavated.
