River Run Network Restoration Workshop: Tanque Verde Arundo - December 4th

Event Date:
Saturday, December 4, 2021 - 8:30am to 12:30pm
Event Address:
Tanque Verde Creek and Wentworth Rd
Tucson, AZ 85749

Come get your hands dirty and help remove Arundo donax (aka Arundo) from Tanque Verde Creek! We are working on a stretch of the river that has seasonal flows, and is flowing now! Arundo is a highly flammable invasive plant that crowds out native plants and habitat along creeks and rivers and increases fire danger. 

Luckily, WMG has just received a long sought-after grant through the Arizona Department of Forestry and Fire Management to get more boots on the ground to tackle this problem! Join Jim Washburne, PhD, WMG's Sr. Project Specialist, and Luis Salgado, WMG's Green Infrastructure Coordinator, to learn about and take action to remove Arundo donax (Giant cane) from our watersheds!

This event is organized through WMG’s River Run Network. If you are not yet a member, we will add you to the Network when you register for this event. RRN membership is free and gives you access to a variety of virtual, dispersed, and physically distanced events including creek walks, restoration activities, river clean-ups, and educational workshops.
