Myself and several MWS Stewards have been involved with a volunteer effort
to remove a giant cane grass (Arundo) from Sabino Canyon for the past year.
We are teaming up with the U.S. Forest Service and the Sabino Canyon
Volunteer Naturalists for 2 big volunteer removal events in November.
Volunteers are needed to help cut and dig out the invasive plant Giant Reed
(Arundo donax) from the creek bottom. This plant is threatening the natural
wildlife habitat and may soon dominate the landscape if these fast-growing,
water-loving plants are not removed. Tools are provided, but wear boots, a
hat, long-sleeve shirt and long pants. Participants may want to bring a
backpack, water and gloves.
When: Sunday, November 2nd and Sunday, November 9th
Time: 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
Where: Sabino Canyon Recreation Area - meet at the Visitor's Center. (5700 N
Sabino Canyon Rd. - Tucson, AZ 85750)
What to bring: boots, a hat, long-sleeve shirt and long pants, backpack,
water and gloves
