Electronic Field Trips

Desert Diversity

Did you know that there are four different deserts in the United States? We’ll be visiting Saguaro National Park to learn more about the Sonoran Desert and its exceptional desert biodiversity. We will focus on the most unique and important species living in this desert, which is visually defined by the Saguaro cactus. These cacti can live to 100 years of age and grow 45 feet tall!

As part of this journey, we will follow thousands of students doing hands-on science and discovering the biodiversity in the park as part of the BioBlitz program led by the National Park Service and National Geographic.

Visitors to the site will find lesson plans for classroom use and interactive games for youth.

4th – 8th Grade Students
