Celebrate National Public Lands Day for 2017 with Sky Island Alliance! We'll be continuing our work in Parker Canyon in the Huachuca Mountains, to improve habitat for wildlife and pollinators. Activities will include invasive species removal and seed collection. No experience is necessary, and we hope you can join us!


6:45 am: Meet us at our office at 406 S 4th Ave if you would like to ride or caravan down to Parker Canyon Lake. We will plan to leave the office by 7:00 am.

9:00 am: If you prefer to meet us down at the lake, plan to join us by 9:00 am at the Parker Canyon Lake Marina parking lot.

3:00 pm: We will wrap up our work for the day and head back to Tucson.

5:00 pm: We will be back to the office by 5:00 pm as long as everything goes according to plan.


  • This project is rated as moderately strenuous; we will be doing a variety of different restoration practices, which could include removing invasive species, planting natives, collecting seed, etc.... The work will include bending and walking on uneven surfaces, and potentially walking through water.


  • CLOSED-TOE SHOES/BOOTS ARE REQUIRED FOR THIS PROJECT. Aside from that, anything you would bring on a long day hike would be recommended, such as plenty of water, lunch/snacks, sun protection (sunscreen, long pants and long-sleeved shirts), etc.


  • Tools, work gloves, supplemental drinking water and first aid equipment.  Tools involved – shovels, picks, and metal pry bars will be our main weapons against invasive plants, as well as for installing native plants. 


  • Families are welcome!
  • Sorry, dogs are not allowed on this project.
  • There is no fee involved for this project (although we will put any donations to good use!)
