Buffelgrass workday on April 4th

The Coalition is once again joining forces with the Catalina State Park Buffel Slayers for one last workday of the season. On April 4th, we will be removing buffelgrass from scenic Catalina State Park. This invasive grass is a major fire threat and is destructive to the Sonoran Desert Ecosystem.

Volunteers working hard to remove buffelgrass!

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 don’t have tools or work glove, we have plenty of extra!

Visit the Southern Arizona Buffelgrass Coordination Center website for more information on buffelgrass and more 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!
