Tucson Audubon Society: Birding & Invasive Plants Walk and Talk at Richard E. Genser Starr Pass Trailhead
Part of the Southeast Arizona Birding Festival
Early morning walk through native desert plant communities that will culminate at a site we have worked in partnership with Pima County Natural Resources Parks and Recreation.
It is a site with a diversity of invasive species as a result of a wildlife water tank that was tampered with resulting in excess water flow to the site. This supplemental water allowed for the invasive species to establish a foothold in the area. Learn how Tucson Audubon is trying to restore this location, and others, back to the way it once was. We’ll look for birds of the Sonoran Desert too! Limited to 8 participants.
“Drive Yourself” field trips will meet on-site at birding locations and you will received detailed directions.
