Desert Weedwackers For Dean

Marilyn Hanson, who is participating in the Environmentalists for Dean group I chair, has come up with a great, environmentally friendly activity for Dean visibility day, this Saturday. The Sonoran Desert Weedwackers remove invasive buffel grass from Tucson Mountain Park, in cooperation with Pima County Parks. Several of us from the group are going to participate in this Saturday morning's project, wearing Dean shirts, from 7 to 10 AM. We are planning to meet at the Albertsons parking lot at Silverbell and Speedway at 6:15 AM, to carpool for the drive to the project meeting place, which is the old caretaker's house, across the street from the Desert Museum. Anyone wishing to participate should E-mail Marilyn Hanson at She needs to know how many will be participating so she can ask Pima County Parks for the proper number of digging tools and gloves. All tools are provided. Plan to bring sunscreen, a hat, water, and snacks. This is a good opportunity to showcase the Dean team's dedication to improving our environment.
