Beat Back Buffelgrass Month: It begins!

January 27, 2018 @ 9:00 am – 4:00 pm

Sabino Canyon Recreation Area, 5900 N Sabino Canyon Rd
Tucson, AZ 85750 United States + Google Map

Join us in Bear Canyon as we kick off not a day, not a week, but a whole month of beating back buffelgrass and fountain grass! We have been working to eradicate fountain grass and buffelgrass from this beautiful area for several years now; steadily working our way up the canyon. We have been doing a great job, but the canyon is long, and we have a lot of ground to cover in our fight against these invasive grasses.
