Birding and Nature Festival in Sierra Vista, Arizona
Greatest Little Birding Festival in the United States - since 1991
Our mission is to promote nature-based tourism and environmental awareness in southeastern Arizona
The barrel cactus is iconic of the Sonoran Desert but it grows alongside the Chihuahuan Desert grassland in Cochise County Arizona. Never use this cactus as a source of water especially since it and all other cactus are protected in Arizona. In Mexico where barrels are more common people do use this cactus to make a sweet. It is sometimes used to find out which way is south.
