We are planning on starting the sign/ campsite inventory of the Ironwood. We will split into groups to explore areas if the Ironwood and gather data for every sign and campsite we can find. The job will include filling out forms, measuring signs and site areas, minor rehab as needed and gathering GPS data. We will split up into at least four teams starting with the four major portals of Silverbell, Avra Valley, Manville and Cocoraque. We will gather what data we can and aim to be headed back to the airport around noon. The data will be used in the future for recreation planning as will as figuring out exactly where we are deficient in signage or if changes need to be made anywhere.  Most likely we will repeat this process on the following volunteer day since it will need to cover the entirety of the Ironwood. 
 
We will meet at the Marana Airport parking lot/staging area at 8am. Make sure to dress appropriately for the weather and work we are doing. Bring water, snacks, lunch, hats, your favorite gloves and loppers, if you wish, and sunscreen. BLM will provide materials, gloves, tools, safety equipment and water to refill your containers.
 
For Dove Mountain folks, we will meet at Dove Mountain Park, plan to depart at 7:30am .
