Meg WeesnerMeg Weesner is a former park ranger in Saguaro National Park. In the 1990s she led a photo-documentation project chronicling the death of Old Granddad, believed to have been the biggest, perhaps oldest, saguaro in the park.

The Saguaro Minute is a short radio podcast about all things saguaro, beloved icon of the Sonoran Desert. Host Kimi Eisele interviews culture bearers, scholars, artists, scientists, and others about our many relationships with the saguaro cactus.

The Saguaro Minute is produced in conjunction with Standing with Saguaros, a 3-act engagement of activities, stories, and performances celebrating the saguaro cactus. Standing with Saguaros is presented by Borderlands Theater in partnership with Saguaro National Park in honor of the National Park Service Centennial. Learn more at www.StandingwithSaguaros.org
