Supes Invasives

Join Friends of the Tonto National Forest in removing fountain and buffel grasses at Spook Hill Spillway. We'll bring the tools and knowledge of invasive plants - you bring the muscle! Removing invasive plants is extremely important to reduce the impact wildfires have. These grasses add fuel to fires, causing them to burn longer and hotter. Check out our video to see a time lapse of volunteers in action!

We will meet at the entrance to the Spook Hill spillway on the north side of Eagle Crest Drive at gps coordinates 33.481010, -111.682217 Mesa, Arizona. Parking will be available at this location.

Mission Statement

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.

Description

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.
