Difficulty: Moderate (Some mild slopes–mostly flat ground and good surfaces. Watch out for pokie cacti!)

The Sonoran Desert is amazingly dense with vegetation compared to other deserts, but this sensitive habitat is at risk due to invasive species such as buffelgrass. Join Senior Invasive Plant Program Manager, Tony Figueroa to hear how Tucson Audubon is constantly working to restore and preserve these places for future generations of people and birds to enjoy. We’ll find some great birds too as we explore the desert and riparian areas around Colossal Cave. Limited to 9 participants.
