Plot 24_2009-11Dec

Plot 13 – surveyed by the Student Conservation Interns and Saguaro National Park Student Employment Program on August x, 2009

Notes: We could have a map of the saguaro plots, and visitors could click on it for the saguaro data. They can access the data by use of their group name and date. *Use calendar as a way to organize this data?

Results: Saguaros (especially small individuals) increased by nearly 30% since the last time the plot was surveyed in 1990. Some older saguaros died – a few of them may have been killed in the 1994 Mother’s Day Fire.
