Information on Saguaro National Park
Over the last twenty years or so, the staff at Saguaro National Park has developed a number of informational pamphlets we call "site bulletins". These site bulletins are designed to aid visitors in planning their visit to the park or in learning about our fascinating natural and cultural history. All of these site bulletins are available at either of the park's visitor centers, or right here on the web. Click on the appropriate subheading to view or print the site bulletins that interest you.
The Saguaro National Park newspaper "The Saguaro Sentinel" is also available to print.
All our site bulletins are in PDF format and require Adobe Acrobat Reader. If you need a copy of Adobe Acrobat Reader, click on the Adobe link to install a free version.
