Sunday AM EOP walks need docents

Tour leaders needed for Sunday morning bird walks at the Sierra Vista Environmental Operations Park! 

These walks take about 3 hours. You do not need to be a birding “expert” since most of the people who attend know quite a lot about birds and only want the ability to get inside the EOP fence. The main duties are to get people to sign the waiver form, unlock and lock the gates, make sure people stay on the paths, and create a bird list for the tour. Training is minimal and will be provided at your convenience. Please contact Dutch Nagle (dutchpat@cox.net or 378-7229) if you can help out

Water Sentinels need you!

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

For the past two years the Arizona Water Sentinels, a sub group of the Sierra Club, has been doing Water Quality testing at several sites along the San Pedro River. They are in need of volunteers to continue with this study.

The duties entail going to one or two sites, taking air temperature, water temperature, dissolved oxygen, PH level, conductivity, total dissolved solids, and e-coli measurements. No special skills are required; we will teach you how to use the instruments.
