Bear Canyon: Planting for Pollinators
August 25, 2018, 7:00 am - 3:00 pmFree
Spend a day with us in beautiful Bear Canyon. We have been working to create a healthier habitat for pollinators and other wildlife in Bear Canyon by removing fountain grass to make way for native plants. Today will be all about planting beautiful flowering plants!
- 7 AM: Meet us at the South end of the Safeway parking lot on the Northeast corner of Sabino Canyon Rd and Tanque Verde Rd.
- 3 PM: We’ll return to the meeting spot.
- This project is rated as moderately strenuous; we will be installing and watering plants. The work will include kneeling, bending, carrying plants and water, and walking on uneven surfaces – potentially walking through water.
WHAT TO BRING
- Anything you would bring on a long day hike, such as plenty of water, lunch/snacks, sun protection (sunscreen, long pants and long-sleeved shirts), etc.
- Sturdy, close-toed footwear (such as boots) is required for this event.
PROVIDED BY SIA
- Tools, work gloves, supplemental drinking water and first aid equipment. Tools involved – shovels and picks to install plants, and buckets to water them.
- 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!)
