Apr 23 - Apr 24
Invasive Species Monitoring and Control - Habitat Restoration at Bear Canyon - Tucson
Two dozen volunteers showed us that they care about our environment last month during the Spring Break @Bear Canyon Restoration Project. Where's Bear Canyon you might ask? This gorgeous drainage in the Catalina foothills of Tucson sits right next to the 56,430 acre Pusch Ridge Wilderness. We were able to clear out huge swaths of non-native Giant reed and Fountain grass but we still have some finishing touches to complete before we’re satisfied – ARE YOU UP FOR THE CHALLENGE?   VIEW DETAILS

Apr 26 - Apr 27
Wilderness Stewardship Program - Fossil Springs Wilderness Monitoring - east of Camp Verde
Join AWC as we return to Fossil Springs Wilderness to celebrate Earth Day! Fossil Springs Wilderness was established in 1984 and it now has a total of 10,434 acres and contains Fossil Creek, a national Wild & Scenic River. This is a 2-day backpack trip where volunteers will monitor for recreational impacts and non-native, invasive plant species along Fossil Creek.

Arizona Trail - Maintenance - South of Rogers Trough Trailhead
Join Arizona Trail Association Segment Steward Craig Gregory and other hardy volunteers as we take revenge on the infamous cats claw on AZT Passage 18b. It isn't too bad yet but a little work now will save a lot of work later. Tasks include pruning and grubbing out the roots of this particularly nasty bush, as well as some light tread work. RSVP to unlimitedduck@gmail.com for additional details, to reserve your lunch and to let us know if you can drive up the mountain.
