Work is planned the Silverbell group site. The project to expand this site is approved. Today’s work is to assess, layout and stake the project. We will also do some vegetation clearing and conduct plant counts. We also need to assess the need for heavy equipment for moving large plants and clearing terrain. Bill Thornton is working with Tucson Cactus and Succulent Society to have specialists on hand to help with the assessment and provide guidance. The next step will take place on our National Public Lands Day volunteer day on December 9th when we will complete the project. We will wrap up at the site by 11:30 allowing time for a stop at Skyrider Cafe at the airport for lunch afterward.
