REGISTER: Monday, September 7th

TRIP SCHEDULE

  • Plan to meet us at the designated meeting spot (near the Sabino Canyon Recreation Area, details TBD) at 8 am.
  • We’ll return to the meeting spot by 3pm.

THE WORK

  • This project is rated as moderately strenuous; we will be digging out invasive grasses. The work will include bending and walking on uneven surfaces, and potentially walking through water.

WHAT TO BRING

  • Anything you would bring on a long day hike, such as plenty of water, lunch/snacks, sturdy footwear (i.e. boots), sun protection (sunscreen, long pants and long-sleeved shirts), etc.
  • Volunteer Agreement/Waiver (only needs to be filled our once in a calendar year) http://www.skyislandalliance.org/vol-agreement-waiver.pdf

PROVIDED BY SIA

  • Tools, work gloves, supplemental drinking water and first aid equipment.  Tools involved – shovels, picks, and metal pry bars will be our main weapons against these invasive plants.  Chemical herbicides will NOT be used.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

  • This trip will be led by Bryon Lichtenhan.
  • Sorry, dogs are not allowed on this project.
  • There is no fee involved for this project (although we will put any donations to good use!)
