Twice a month from December to March, park volunteers host Star Parties which include a night hike, viewing the night sky through scopes, and a campfire. Space is limited, please reserve your groups spot in advance.

Electronic Field Trip

As a teacher, you are welcome to utilize the park for Self-guided field trip which are available year-round or watch the Saguaro National Park Electronic Field Trip and use the associated lesson plans which are designed to be hands-on and adaptable for 4th through 8th grade. The electronic field trip is available upon request.

Water Curriculum

There is no better way to protect park water resources than to teach people about the beauties and challenges of the park, especially children who will become life long stewards. If you are a teacher or a student, we have developed a series of lessons exploring wilderness, water, and the impact wilderness has on local Tucson water supplies that you can use with your classroom, club, or afternoon school group.
