Submission Details

Thank You to “A Mountain” Supporters

The goal of raising $18,000 to fund the essential suppression spraying of buffelgrass has been met. AND, spraying has begun. The 50 acre summit was treated while the invasive was newly sprouted and green, which is the best way strategy to eliminate it. Additional funds over the goal will enable the target area to be enlarged. Thank you to all the contributors in the Tucson area and beyond for your generous response!


We want to help you select local plants that thrive in our natural habitat but are also  both beautiful and economical. This will result in plants that are easier to care for and better support our local ecosystem. Our Grow Native initiative is here to help show you the way!
