Invasive species are one of the biggest threats to our park’s ecosystem health. Become a Desert Defender at upcoming events to help improve our natural areas and deter wildfires. This event will take place at Cave Creek Regional Park, led by Maricopa Parks and Recreation.

You can register by clicking this link. Come prepared to pull, bag, and remove invasive species in the park. Please dress appropriately for the weather and bring gloves, water, and a snack for yourself.

Note: Programs with less than five registered volunteers may be canceled at least one day before the event. Registered volunteers will receive an email stating the event has been canceled.
