MOC Members Volunteer

4 MOC members joined us here at Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument to assist in the removal of buffelgrass, an invasive grass which is threatening our beautiful Sonoran Desert.

Long time MOC members, Charlie & Nila MacLeod (8.1al)and new members Peter & Diana Rawson (Pirate Pete) joined us for a day in the desert where we pulled 1,171 plants and filled 32 bags and then hauled the bags on our backs up and down washes back to the truck. It was a physically exhausting but fun day - aspirin was served all around!!!

We thank these MOCers for their help and we thank Grant & Kathy (BirdingRVer) for their idea to invite MOCers to help. Unfortunately, they couldn't make it this year but we are happy to hear Kathy is healing after her surgery.

Jo-Anna, David, Nila, Charlie, Diana, Pete

What a great looking group! Wish we could have been there to help. Perhaps next year.

Thank you all for all your hard work to keep the environment as it should be.

People, you would not believe what a smooth talker Jo-Anna is. We told David and Jo-Anna that Pete and Diana, our new members were camped close to us so they stopped by to say hi. We were talking about why Nila and I were there and that's when Jo-Anna went into action. Moments later Pete and Diana were volunteered to pull Bufflegrass, I don't think they knew what hit them!!!!! WOW

As Jo-Anna said the job was exhausting but we all had a great day, a lot of fun and left knowing that we had made a small contribution to one of our favorite parks.
