The Phoenix Weedwackers is a volunteer group formed to help eradicate invasive species such as buffelgrass from the Phoenix Mountain Preserves. Buffelgrass, a drought tolerant invasive species, has spread over several areas of the preserves and threatens to crowd out native vegetation. It also creates a fire hazard that normally wouldn't exist in our deserts.
The Phoenix Weedwackers started their work in December of 2006 at Piestewa Peak in Phoenix. With an average of 20 volunteers a month we have made a significant impact around the trailhead and entrance areas of Piestewa peak. To volunteer with us please view our schedule on the Future Workdates page or contact email@example.com .
There's plenty of work for months to come. Most of the grassy plants are buffelgrass.
A happy weedwacker!
We haul the truckloads away!
