Join us March 7th to remove buffelgrass!

Removing buffelgrass helps protect the Sonoran Desert.

Removing buffelgrass helps protect the Sonoran Desert.

Do you want to help protect the Sonoran Desert? Buffelgrass is a highly flammable invasive species that greatly alters the fragile native ecosystem. But there is something you can do to help!

On March 7th, the Coalition is partnering with the Catalina State Park Buffel Slayers for a fun and rewarding workday to remove buffelgrass.

When: Saturday, March 7th, 8am-12pm

Where: Catalina State Park. We will meet at the Equestrian Center parking lot.

Click here for a map and directions to the Park.

For this day, entrance to the Park will be free if you are volunteering to remove buffelgrass! Please bring a reusable water bottle, tools if you have them (such as a shovel), your favorite work gloves, and wear sturdy closed-toed shoes.

Visit the Southern Arizona Buffelgrass Coordination Center website for more information on buffelgrass and volunteer opportunities.

If you have any questions, please contact Hannah at,hannah.stitzer@sonorandesert.org or at (520) 388-9925.

This is a great opportunity to protect the natural treasure that is Catalina State Park. Buffelgrass is spreading, and we need volunteers like you to ensure that the Park remains a place with stunning wildlife and pristine habitat. We hope to see you there!
