Parker Canyon Seed Collection

June 16, 2017, 7:00 am - 5:00 pm

Free

BACKGROUND

Sky Island Alliance is partnering with the National Forest Service and Borderlands Restoration to create a diverse pollinator plant palette of native under-story plants in Parker Canyon! The seeds we collect will be grown out to be re-planted after we rid the canyon of invasive species.

PROJECT SCHEDULE & LOCATION
  • If you would like a ride down to the lake, or if you want to caravan, we will be meeting at the SIA office (406 S 4th Ave) at 7:00AM.
  • If you’d like to meet us at the parking lot about the Parker Lake Marina, plan on joining us at 9:00AM
  • We will work though the day with a break for lunch and plan on being back to Tucson by 5:00PM.
THE WORK AND WHAT TO KNOWOur tasks will involve collecting seeds from targeted plant species. Volunteers do not need to have prior training to participate. Sky Island Alliance and/or Borderlands Restoration will provide all tools and instruction as well as extra copies of our volunteer waivers which need to be signed by each participant only once per calendar year.

WHAT TO BRING

  • Water, snacks, and lunch.
  • Sturdy footwear (ex. hiking boots) with closed toes is encouraged as are rain gear and sun protection (ex. wide-brimmed hat, sunblock, long sleeved shirt and long pants)
