Save Our Saguaros

March 21 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

Free

This Voter Education Program is a panel discussion about the saguaro cactus, which is an icon for the beautiful desert that is such an important part of the lives of
all Tucsonans. What do we need to save our saguaros from? The answer is a non-native invasive
plant, buffelgrass, that was introduced to Arizona in the 1930’s. Buffelgrass is a highly flammable
grass that is spreading aggressively, forming dense stands that crowd out native plants and that
propagate hot, saguaro-killing fires.
What comes back after a fire is not native vegetation—only more buffelgrass. In this Voter
Education Program, you will hear from three experts about the role saguaros play in our desert
ecosystem and local economy, details of the buffelgrass threat, and what actions we can all take
to Save Our Saguaros!
