Park Watch: Protect Saguaro National Park by Reporting Suspicious Activity
Similar to a neighborhood block watch, Park Watch is a newly established program for park neighbors and visitors to help protect the park. The program’s goal is to decrease resource crimes and criminal activity on public lands, while encouraging park visitors and neighbors to take an active role in keeping Saguaro a safe and enjoyable place to visit.
Please be alert for any threats to the park and its resources. Examples include arson, vandalism, off-road vehicle activity, theft of resources (archeological, cactus, minerals, etc.), poaching (mammals, reptiles, etc.), dumping of debris, illegal camping, and marijuana cultivation or drug labs. If you observe a crime in progress, do not attempt to take any action or intervene yourself. Note the time and location of the incident, descriptions of the persons and vehicles involved, including license plate numbers, and report your observations to a park ranger.
