Saguaro National Park East
The Rincon Mountain District of Saguaro National Park ranges from an elevation of 2670 ft to 8666 ft and contains 6 biotic communities. The biotic communities (starting from the lowest elevation) include desert scrub desert grassland oak woodland pine-oak woodland pine forest and mixed conifer forest. Average annual precipitation is approximately 12.30 in. The Rincon Mountains peak at a considerably higher elevation than the Tucson Mountains therefore there are more biotic communities and increased plant and wildlife diversity. Because of the higher elevation in the Rincons animals like the black bear Mexican spotted owl Arizona mountain king snake and white-tailed deer live in this district.
