Plant a Tree, Help a Bird

--Kendall Kroesen, Urban Program Manager

The cool season has arrived! Well, the cooler season, anyway. Mornings have been clear and slightly chilled.

With the lower temperatures, our fall volunteer habitat restoration work days have begun at Atturbury Wash. On Saturday September 28 we had about 40 University of Arizona students planting trees and shrubs. They also dug rainwater harvesting basins, spread mulch, and installed drip irrigation. They did a great job!

Come out and help with this project--located on the east side of Tucson at Lincoln Regional Park--on one of these additional volunteer days through December:

October 12, 7 - 11 a.m.
November 16, 8 a.m. - noon
December 7, 8 a.m. - noon
(Other's will be scheduled in January through March)
