CORONADO NATIONAL MEMORIAL - Be green this August and help the endangered, Lesser Long-Nosed Bat.
On Saturday, August 18th, volunteers will plant over 1000 agaves in the Coronado National Forest to help protect the bat's habitat. Agaves need bats to pollinate their flowers and bats need agave for food.
Many of the agaves that grow in the grasslands of the park were removed during the construction of the border fence. Many others were destroyed or damaged by wildfire.
You can join a planting team. Wildlife biologists and volunteers will meet from 7:00am to 1:00pm Saturday, August 18 at the Coronado National Memorial Visitor Center. Water, snacks and tools will be provided.
Reserve your spot by calling (520) 366-5515.
