The National Park Service's Southeast Arizona Group (SEAZ) includes Chiricahua National Monument, Coronado National Memorial, and Fort Bowie National Historic Site. The three sites are managed by one leadership team, headed by a superintendent. 

Every park in the group is unique in its own right: the cultural history of Fort Bowie and the shaping of the American West, the geologic grandeur of the standing rocks at Chiricahua, and the Spanish history and rich landscape of Coronado National Memorial. Yet, each park shares more in common than geography alone. The SEAZ Group parks are protected areas where important historical events took place and where crucial biological habitats intersect. 

Join us in real time with a ranger to learn more about what one, or all three of our park sites, has to offer!
