About: Students want the viewers to have an understanding of all the beautiful plants and stunning wildlife currently existing in the Saguaro National Park located in Tucson, AZ. Students want to familiarize people (who live in local and other regional areas) about the plants and animals in Arizona national parks; to perhaps encourage people to visit and appreciate the beautiful “Life in the grand desert”. Student drawings and prints express the simple beauty of life in the park.
