Do you know about the dangers of buffelgrass? This invasive species is an extreme fire threat in the Sonoran Desert and greatly alters the fragile native ecosystem. But there is something you can do to help!
On January 24th, the Coalition is taking part in Beat Back Buffelgrass Day (BBBGD) at scenic Catalina State Park. Headed by the Southern Arizona Buffelgrass Coordination Center (SABCC), BBBGD is an opportunity for members from the community to travel to a number of sites to remove buffelgrass and help protect our natural environment.
When: Saturday, January 24, 8am-12pm
Where: Catalina State Park. We will meet at the Equestrian Center parking lot.
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.
If you have any questions, please contact Hannah at,firstname.lastname@example.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!
