THE WORK
We will be working to remove invasive Sahara mustard from the site along with any other invasive plants that might be trying to establish themselves. Volunteers do not need to have prior training to participate. Sky Island Alliance will provide all tools and instruction as well as extra copies of our volunteer waivers which need to be signed by each participant only once per calendar year.
