NPS/Saguaro National Park

Help Preserve the Sonoran Desert by removing buffelgrass, a highly invasive grass that threatens native plants and wildlife populations.

Volunteers are needed to assist with buffelgrass pulls, held the second Saturday of each month, from Sept-April. Work will be approximately 4 hours of digging up buffelgrass. We will meet at scheduled times (see schedule below) at the Rincon Mountain District Visitor Center. 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.
