Stewarding work party for the water-harvesting traffic calming and public pathways at 11th Ave and 1st Street

October 15 @ 8:00 am - 9:30 am

Free

Come join us this Saturday, October 15th 8am to steward—clean up, weed, prune, mulch, and plant the traffic-calming, water-harvesting round-a-bout and chicanes and public pathways at 11th Ave and 1st Street, in the Dunbar/Spring neighborhood in Tucson, AZ.

We’ll enhance the water-harvesting within the traffic circle and plant backyard nursery-grown native understory plants and native wildflower and restoration seed mixes.

Its a great opportunity to improve your plant identification skills, as we’ll make clear what plants are desired (and why), and which are invasive weeds.

Depending on how much we get done, we may even be able to prep and plant more stormwater-irrigated street trees.

Bring tools, such as shovel, rake, pruning shears, if you have them; though we’ll have extra for those without.


Want a similar work party on your block?
Contact Brad at NeighborhoodForesters@gmail.com and we’ll help you organize it, promote it, supervise it, and bring in other volunteers.

The idea is to get to know your neighbors, and then we help each other out while making things better for everyone.

Big thanks to Maxie Adler and Javier Zamora who are the residents and stewards on this block who spearheaded this work party & agreed to water the new plantings to get them established after planting

Hope to see you there!

Let’s spruce up our neighborhood for Cyclovia on Oct. 30th!
