Please visit the new page to apply.
Our invasive plant crew is conducting a Field Maps training session for monitoring non-native plants in the Tonto National Forest. You'll how to use Esri Field Maps to record locations and related data for non native plants. This is a free app downloadable to iPhone or Android devices.
We will meet at the Bush Highway Trailhead at 7:30 am and take a short hike into a wash where your will learn how to identify the plants and record points or polygons to indicate their presence and current status. At this time of year, we will be seeing fountain and buffel grasses as well as salt cedar that will be actively growing.
Once trained, you can help monitor invasive plants whenever you are out in the Forest. This data helps our team determine where to focus removal efforts.

Friends of the Tonto National Forest is a group of volunteers who assist the Forest Service in its critical mission of natural and cultural resource and visitor use management. We promote public understanding of the Tonto National Forest’s policies, programs and projects.
Friends of the Tonto National Forest was founded by a former Forest Service employee in order to help the Forest Service achieve the many projects that are being done. The Tonto is over 2.9 million acres, so managing it takes a lot of people! Friends of the Tonto organizes the following projects: Riparian Photopoint, Invasive Plant Removal, Milkweed for Monarchs, Cave Creek Trail System Maintenance, Water Source Inventory, Adopt-a-Site, and Archaeology.
