This is our last planned work day for March and we are asked to support a very special project related to the Nichols Turks Head Cactus (NTHC) in the Waterman’s. The project will involve establishing or reestablishing monitoring plots for this endangered species within the IFNM. We will walk these areas to record all NTHC plants within the plots, previously identified plants and new ones. From what I’ve seen on the location of the plots, this looks like fairly level ground and vehicles will park close to the plots. Darrell Tersey will join us in the field for this project. This should be a fun project!! (and gives us a break from fencing :-)).

8:00am – Marana Airport
12:00 (approx) – finish up at the site
