Help Preserve the Sonoran Desert by removing buffelgrass, a highly invasive grass that threatens native plants and wildlife populations.
Volunteers are needed to help at buffelgrass parties, held two Saturdays each month during the cooler months, and occasionally on weekdays. Work will be about 4 hours of digging up buffelgrass and sometimes other invasive species under the supervision of park staff. Location will vary. Bring a backpack with plenty of water and wear sturdy shoes. A hat, long sleeves, and long pants are recommended. Tools and gloves will be provided. Looking forward to seeing you there!
Please complete and bring with you the Volunteer Services Agreement Form. If you are under 18 years old, please have a parent or legal guardian complete their section.
