Buffelgrass Removal on TV

Buffelgrass on TV! Van Nguyen from the UA MPASA program volunteered with us for our recent Days of Caring Buffelgrass Removal Event in the Sunnyside Neighborhood. Van put together this short piece which aired on KVOA recently. There wasn't time to mention SABCC or Tucson Clean and Beautiful by name but we're still proud of it.

Thanks to Van and all our other hardworking volunteers!
