    Get Out There: Natural Resources, Parks and Recreation Events

    Save Our Saguaros Kickoff

    The Sonoran Desert is being threatened by plants brought in from other parts of the world. Lacking the insects, diseases, and other organisms that helped keep them in check back home, some go wild, pushing out native plants. Some, like buffelgrass and fountain grass, also create a heavy, continuous layer of grass that can fuel fast-moving, damaging wildfires.

    Tucson Mountain Park is ground zero in this monthlong fight to remove the invasive plant but there are multiple locations throughout Pima County involving many groups and hundreds of volunteers.

    Free. Online registration required.

    WHEN: Saturday, January 26 • 8 a.m. - noon
    WHERE: Pima County Tucson Mountain Park
