Spring Break: Bear Canyon Edition – Monday

March 14 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Free
unnamed

Spend a day or two (or most of the week!) with us in beautiful Bear Canyon. We are working to create a healthier habitat for native species by removing  invasive plants and planting species that are beneficial to the other native plants and animals in this riparian community.

TO REGISTER CLICK HERE!


TRIP SCHEDULE

  • Plan to meet us at the South end of the Safeway parking lot on the Northeast corner of Sabino Canyon and Tanque Verde at 9am.
  • 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

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!)
