Days of Caring – Fountain Grass Removal Saturday
October 21, 2017, 8:00 am - 3:00 pmFree
Join us in beautiful Bear Canyon as we celebrate United Way’s Days of Caring. We will be working in the canyon to remove invasive grasses both Friday and Saturday, so please join us for whichever day(s) work for you. We will be meeting at the south end of the Safeway parking lot at Sabino Canyon and Tanque Verde at 8AM, before carpooling into our work site.
- This project is rated as moderately strenuous; we will be digging out invasive grasses. The work will include bending and walking on uneven surfaces, and potentially walking through water.
WHAT TO BRING
- Anything you would bring on a long day hike, such as plenty of water, lunch/snacks, sturdy footwear (i.e. boots), sun protection (sunscreen, long pants and long-sleeved shirts), etc.
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 Sami Hammer.
- 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!)
