Invasive Species Monitoring and Control - Habitat Restoration at Bear Canyon - Tucson
Two dozen volunteers showed us that they care about our environment last month during the Spring Break @Bear Canyon Restoration Project. Where's Bear Canyon you might ask? This gorgeous drainage in the Catalina foothills of Tucson sits right next to the 56,430 acre Pusch Ridge Wilderness. We were able to clear out huge swaths of non-native Giant reed and Fountain grass but we still have some finishing touches to complete before we’re satisfied – ARE YOU UP FOR THE CHALLENGE?   VIEW DETAILS
