Okay, it's really a video. Written and directed by Mark Hengesbaugh! Starring top volunteers!
Sonoran Desert plants have returned in great profusion to Sabino Creek Recreation Area in places that were once overrun by 30-ft. high thickets of the invasive Giant Reed (Arundo donax) thanks to volunteers and donors who participated in or supported the difficult work of removing the non-native cane. We’ve identified and counted the plant species returning where Giant Reed was removed. This seven-minute video gives you the update on Sabino's remarkable recovery.
