I'm off to learn about native grasses today at a class made possible through a joint effort of the Desert Botanical Garden and the Conservation Alliance. Today is seat learning, tomorrow is the field day. Next weekend I will be putting this knowledge to use by removing invasive grasses in Aravipa Canyon. Grass is the fuel that feeds both our livestock and our native herbivores but it is also the fuel that feeds wildfires. What's a good grass and what is a bad grass is important stuff to know!
