Arizona centennial cactus debuts
Gov. Jan Brewer unveiled a decades-old saguaro cactus on Thursday in honor of Arizona’s 100 years of statehood.
At 70 to 100 years old and about 21 feet tall, the saguaro at the Wesley Bolin Memorial Plaza is part of a larger effort to beautify the Capitol Mall to prepare for the state’s official Feb. 14
Senate President-elect Steve Pierce, R-Prescott, and other state and business representatives joined Brewer at the unveiling.
