- Plan to meet us at the designated meeting spot (near the Sabino Canyon Recreation Area, details TBD) at 8 am.

- Volunteer Agreement/Waiver (only needs to be filled our once in a calendar year) https://skyislandalliance.org/vol-agreement-waiver.pdf
PROVIDED BY SIA
- Tools, work gloves, supplemental drinking water and first aid equipment. Tools involved – shovels, picks, and metal pry bars will be our main weapons against these invasive plants. Chemical herbicides will NOT be used.
- This trip will be led by Bryon Lichtenhan.
- Sorry, dogs are not allowed on this project.
- There is no fee involved for this project (although we will put any donations to good use!)
