Watch Now: Saguaro National Park works on a study to understand saguaro reproduction

Don Swann, biologist, and Gabe León, intern with American Conservation Experience, take pictures of the flowers and buds on the tops of a saguaros as part of a study to record the reproduction of saguaros as well as the flowers and buds at Saguaro National Park West outside of Tucson, Ariz. on May 24, 2022. After a large bloom last spring due to the monsoon rains, saguaros this year seem to be taking the year off. Experts, like Swann, are reporting below average bud and flower production by Saguaros in the Rincon and Tucson Mountains. Video by Rebecca Sasnett / Arizona Daily Star
