Managed to hide most of it with some clever angles before picking it up, yet something is still wrong with this picture. Can you spot the trash?
These Penstemons are in full bloom right now making for some very beautiful patches all around the canyon. Did you know the common name for a Penstemon is "Beards Tongue"? Despite it's tough name, and hardy nature, they can be sensitive to erosion, pollution, and irresponsible recreation.
In fact, there is a rare penstemon that only grows right here in our own back yard, Penstemon Clutei or Sunset Crater Beards Tongue. Native only to a limited area near Flagstaff! To find out more about your watershed and ways to participate head over to oakcreekwatershed.org!
Interested in becoming a steward for the Watershed? There are many ways you can give back to the communities and places you love! A new way of giving back to your favorite 501(c)(3) organizations is Amazon Smile. Now you can help support the environment (and others) while shopping at home! Simply start an Amazon Smile account. Select the organization of your choosing and a small percentage of all the money you spend will go to that organization! Awesome right? So if you would like to see more volunteers, less trash, and more innovative new projects along Oak Creek, you now have yet another way to give back by setting up your Amazon Smile account, and selecting to support the Oak Creek Watershed Council. Only takes a minute and you only have to do it once. Thank you for helping us keep a watchful eye over the watershed. We couldn't do it without you, cheers!
