Invasive Species Monitoring and Control - Habitat Restoration at Bear Canyon - Tucson
Bear Canyon in the Santa Catalina foothills of Tucson sits right next to the picturesque 56,430 acre Pusch Ridge Wilderness. We were able to clear out huge swaths of non-native Giant reed and Fountain grass this past year but we still have some finishing touches to complete before we’re satisfied. In concert with the eradication we will also be installing native plants. Please see full details and register online by following the link at the bottom of this page.   VIEW DETAILS

Wildlife Linkages - Oracle Road Wildlife Crossing: Monday Irrigation - Tucson/Catalina/Oro Valley
Be part of history with Sky Island Alliance as we do our part to make sure wildlife adapts well to the new vegetated wildlife crossing (a.k.a. wildlife bridge) over Oracle Road. This overpass (along with at least one underpass) will connect two large, separate wildland areas, or habitat blocks, (in this case the Santa Catalina and Tortolita Mountains) and allows animals to move from one area to another to find food, rest, mate and successfully raise young.  VIEW DETAILS
