Volunteers Needed to Help Remove Buffelgrass This Weekend (Video)

Volunteers are needed for Saturday's Beat Back Buffelgrass Day. The goal is to help slow the spread of the non-native weed, which poses a severe fire hazard and a deadly threat to native vegetation.

Organizers of the event, hosted by the Southern Arizona Buffelgrass Coordination Center, will guide volunteers in removing buffelgrass from neighborhoods, roads, washes, and schools.

Volunteers are asked to register online.
