Desert Foothills Land Trust has a unique opportunity to help with a current community science effort. ASU's Southwest Urban Corridor Integrated Field Laboratory, in conjunction with Central Arizona Conservation Alliance and other partners, is collecting annual plant samples to understand Arizona's fossil fuel emissions better.

We need volunteers to help us with this effort. We'll be collecting plants at PA Sietts Preserve, mostly invasive species such as stinknet, to provide as samples. Once you've been trained on the protocol, you can assist with the effort by collecting samples elsewhere.

You can learn more about the project at this link, from partner Sky Island Alliance in Tucson.

We'll meet at the PA Seitts Preserve parking lot on Wednesday, April 24th at 9 am. Training should last about 1.5 hours. Make sure to wear closed-toed shoes, sun protection, and bring plenty of water. You may also choose to bring gloves, since we will be handling stinknet. We may hike up to 3 miles, over most flat but rocky terrain. Space for the training is limited, so please register at the link below. Thank you for volunteering!
