TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Saguaro National Park in southern Arizona is getting part of a pot of federal and private money for maintenance and infrastructure work at U.S. national parks.

The Interior Department says Saguaro is to receive over $215,000, nearly evenly split as coming from the federal government and from several private sources, including the Friends of Saguaro National Park and the Western National Park Association.

The department says plans call for Saguaro to spend the money on creating accessible outdoor classroom space.

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke on Saturday announced more than $50 million for maintenance and infrastructure work at national parks in 42 parks in 29 states.
