Saguaro National Monument is administered by the National Park Service of the United States Department of the Interior. A superintendent and several park rangers live in the monument. They maintain and protect the area and provide assistance and interpretive service for you. Other national monuments in the vicinity include Chiricahua an area of weird rock formations in extreme southeastern Arizona; Tumacacori, an old Spanish Mission on U. S. 89 between Tucson and Nogales; Organ Pipe Cactus featuring strange plants of the Sonoran Desert, on the Mexican border about 140 miles west of Saguaro; and Casa Grande, spectacular remains of a prehistoric Indian village, about halfway between Phoenix and Tucson.
