EVENT DETAILS
Appleton Whittell Research Ranch Pond Restoration
Help us Create Habitat for Wildlife!
 
 
BACKGROUND
 
The ponds at Audubon's Research Ranch offer important habitat for a number of rare species including Chiricahua leopard frogs and Mexican gartersnake. We partnered with the National Audubon Society, Tom Biebighauser of Wetland Restoration and Training LLC, and Borderlands Restoration to bring new life to these water sources! Join us now as we work to put a finishing touch on our new ponds by planting some very special plants grown from seed collected from the ranch and remove invasive species.

PROJECT SCHEDULE & LOCATION
 
  • 7:00 AM Meet on Friday at our office: 406 S 4th Ave, to carpool or caravan to the site.
  • 9:00 AM If you want to meet us out at the ranch, please arrive by 9.
  • We will work throughout the morning with a break for lunch. We should be heading back to Tucson by early afternoon.

THE WORK AND WHAT TO KNOW

We will be installing plants raised from seed gathered on the ranch by the folks from Borderlands Restoration. Be prepared to get dirty, maybe even muddy, but rest assured that there will be tasks for all levels of ability. Long pants and long sleeves are highly recommended - some of the invasives we'll be removing are thorny.

   
WHAT TO BRING
  • Water, snacks, and lunch.
  • Binoculars - this is a fabulous birding spot!
  • Sturdy footwear (ex. hiking boots) that you don't mind getting dirty or muddy
  • Sun Protection (ex. wide-brimmed hat, sunblock, long sleeved shirt and long pants)
  • SIA will provide all tools and work gloves, though if you have a pair of gloves you like, feel free to bring them.
