TRIP SCHEDULE

Plan to meet us at the South end of the Safeway parking lot on the NE corner of Sabino Canyon and Tanque Verde at 8 am. We’ll return to the meeting spot by 3pm. We will shuttle/carpool to the actual work site in Bear Canyon from our meeting spot, as we will be driving into an area of the National Forest with restricted access and limited parking.

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

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!)
