Monthly Buffelgrass Pulls
Monthly Volunteer Buffelgrass Removal: Saguaro National Park East - Weed Wackers
Thank you for your interest in helping Saguaro National Park remove buffelgrass from our wild spaces. We work every second Saturday of the month at the Rincon Mountain District of the Park for approximately 4 hours. Our meeting times are as follows:
When: September, October, April, and May meet at 7:00 and November - March meet at 8:00
We rendezvous in front of the Visitor Center and then carpool to the work site. While the Park does provide tools and gloves for the volunteers, we ask that participants come prepared for a day in the field. This includes; long pants, sturdy shoes, sun protection, and water to drink throughout the work day.
Feel free to e-mail us or call (520) 733-5187 with any questions regarding Saguaro National Park's buffelgrass removal events.
