Tuzigoot National Monument
Tuzigoot National Monument, which protects an ancient pueblo built by the Sinagua, is an 834-acre unit located just below the Mogollon Rim in Central Arizona. The dynamic nature of Earth's geologic processes is evident in the landforms surrounding the monument: the mineral-rich Black Hills, the sandstone country of Sedona, the palisades of the Mogollon Rim, and the limestone hills of the Verde Valley. The monument contains numerous plant species that have adapted to the arid environment, and, due to the micro-habitats provided by riparian corridors, also hosts moisture-loving plants. Tavasci Marsh provides yet another habitat for the diverse flora and fauna found within and near the monument.
Tuzigoot National Monument is also part of the American Southwest Virtual Museum, a digital repository of photographs, maps, information, and virtual tours.
