Smart Cookies!

Photos and Text from Mark Hengesbaugh:

Left to proliferate in Sabino Canyon Recreation Area for years, invasive Giant Reed (Arundo donax) spread with the creek flow. On “Make a Difference Day,” Oct. 24, 2009, nearly 80 local Girl Scouts dug out Arundo infestations in the Hidden Valley homeowners association downstream from the recreation area. Hundreds of volunteers of all ages have helped and today most of the Arundo has been cleared from Sabino Creek down to its confluence with Bear Creek.
