Birding with a Purpose: Sweetwater Wetlands Monarch Waystation Planting

Event Description:

We’ll begin this special restoration field trip with an easy, early morning walk around the wetlands followed by planting special native plants for a Monarch Waystation. All of the plants will be donated by the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum and we will work with Tucson Water as we partner together to enhance the opportunities at Sweetwater for butterflies and hummingbirds. You can take this opportunity to learn how to bring this habitat to your own home! Be prepared to get dirty and it could be hot. Bring gardening gloves, lots of water, and your binoculars! Planting will begin about 7:30 a.m. Limit to 15 participants. Please register for this trip here: https://www.z2systems.com/np/clients/tas/eventRegistration.jsp?event=4186&
