Here are the details:

Thanks to all who were able to participate in this month’s buffelgrass event. It was prime spray season, and we devoted 15 hours and 14 gallons of spray to our open spaces over the weekend. There were also three bags of a combination of trash and buffelgrass that were pulled.

Sections one and four were scouted and treated. In addition, there was touch up work along Sycamore Leaf and around the back of houses in Pepper Viner, where there is stubborn, small regrowth. We also completed perimeter work along the Saguaro Loop trail behind the fence in section 1 and along Camino del Toro and Harrison Road along the perimeter of our community.
