Developed in conjunction with the Saguaro National Park BioBlitz celebration, the Electronic Field Trip consists of:

  • 5 on-line GAMES that allow students to explore the plant and animal life of Saguaro National Park in fun and engaging ways;

  • 5 coordinated LESSON plans that tie in to the themes of the Games and act as classroom extensions -- each plan offers suggestions for in-class and outdoor activities that you can do in your school;

  • a 50-minute video SHOW that was produced live at the BioBlitz and takes students to areas all over the park to explore its many environments.

The forest of the Saguaro Wilderness Area.

Saguaro National Park is more than just a desert park. In fact, the highest point in the eastern district is Mica Mountain at 8,666 ft. There you will find a dense forest of Ponderosa pine, Douglas fir, alligator-bark juniper, and aspen.
