King Canyon in Saguaro National Park West

<< Back to AZNPS Conservation and Restoration Ongoing Projects

Following the remarkable restoration of Diversity Wash, AZNPS volunteers teamed up with Saguaro National Park West and the botany group of the Desert Museum to control 625 square meters of bermudagrass along a one-mile stretch of King Canyon. After three years of repeated spot sprays the bermudagrass was reduced to less than 10 square meters, There has been a remarkable resurgence of Setaria and Sacaton as well as native Cattails. Volunteers continue to spot spray bermudagrass as well as buffelgrass in King Canyon.
