Saguaro NP

Saguaro National Park in Tucson, Arizona has joined Nature's Notebook to contribute to the Flowers For Bats Campaign. The lesser long-nosed bat is an important species at Saguaro National Park because they pollinate the Saguaro cactus and other plants of interest. They have been conducting bat counts in bat roosts within the park. Tracking the phenology of pollinator plants will augment our findings and help protect this vulnerable species.
