18 Volunteers Remove 35 Bags Full of Sabino's Invasive Grasses

It was warm and sunny Sunday morning as a large crew of cheerful volunteers walked out to the west side of Sabino Creek below the dam and began removing invasive grasses along the rock wall behind the picnic tables and new ramadas. Eighteen volunteers filled 35 65-gallon bags with buffelgrass, fountain grass, Lehmann lovegrass and soft-feather pappus grass and returned to the parking lot by noon. Total hours donated: 75.

Next invasive species hand-removal event is Sun., March 20, 2016, 9-12 noon. (We hope to be able to use the Southern Arizona Rescue Association parking lot to avoid the weekend parking jam in the public lot—we’ll keep you posted.) Please invite your friends and neighbors—spread the word. RSVP to Jean: jeanheng10 at comcast dot net (you know what to do).
