      Save Our Saguaros

      The saguaro cactus 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!
