Wildfire Awareness Month and Events

May is National Wildfire Awareness Month and together, EcoFlora and the Central Arizona Conservation Alliance (CAZCA) are working to raise awareness and provide opportunities to learn about wildfire. We have virtual events planned with local experts, a series of blog posts filled with info, and this month's EcoQuest invites you to learn about and search for invasive plant species that fuel wildfire. You can also follow along with us on social (ecofloraphx) to learn about wildfire throughout the month.
