Save our Saguaros - Beat Back Buffelgrass! Help protect your community from the threat of wildfire.

Here at the Desert Museum we want to help you find opportunities to help save our saguaros, while also learning about the Sonoran Desert and having fun while you do it!

Why: Buffelgrass is invasive grass species that has established a strong foothold in the Tucson Basin. Buffelgrass and saguaros cannot coexist. Buffelgrass outcompetes saguaros for space, nutrients and water, slowly eliminating saguaros from the landscape. It also poses a serious fire risk, burning hot and fast. Can you spare a couple of hours to save a few saguaros or reduce the risk of catastrophic fire to our community?

How: If you are interested in volunteering, Sign Up to Volunteer and you’ll be taken to a list of action events across the region. If you’d like to host a buffelgrass pull in your own neighborhood, your favorite park, or elsewhere, Register a Site, and it will be added to our list of sites for volunteers to choose from.

**Not all activities listed here are through the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum. Each organization registering on this site takes responsibility for their own event.
