Public Registration for the 2011 Saguaro BioBlitz inventory teams is now open! You are invited to join scientists in the field to find and identify species that live in Saguaro National Park during the BioBlitz on October 21-22, 2011.
Online registration can be found at www.nationalgeographic.com/bioblitz. Due to limited space on inventory teams, advance registration is required to ensure a spot on a team.

The Coalition has adopted Oracle Road / State Route 77 from milepost 83 to 84, as part of the Adopt-A-Highway campaign. This section of the road encompasses two of the three wildlife crossings that are slated for construction in 2013. Our first cleanup is this Saturday, from 7am~10am. If you can help for all or any portion of the time, please let us know. We will provide breakfast foods, snacks, and water to refill your water bottles.
This is a great opportunity to check out the crossing locations firsthand and to get all the up-to-date information about the progress of the wildlife crossings! We will also be on the lookout for signs of wildlife to document their use of the area.
