Beat Back Buffelgrass Day!

BBBG Day Poster 2011



Buffelgrass invasion is threatening to transform the mostly fireproof and diverse Sonoran Desert into a flammable and impoverished savanna, affecting both natural and urban areas.


On Saturday, February 5th, 2011, from 8 to 11am,  hundreds of volunteers will join in the fight against this growing environmental problem.

Last year on Beat Back Buffelgrass Day, over 500 volunteers removed more than 15,000 buffelgrass plants from 20 locations in just a few hours.  This year, with the help of the University of Arizona Softball Team and Coach Mike Candrea, we are hoping to attract more than a thousand volunteers.


Please join Coach Candrea, the LadyCats and your neighbors in this community-wide event to engage the general public.
