Cactus thorns go through gloves

The Wilderness Volunteers Board of Directors met for the annual meeting at Casa McLean in Tucson earlier this month. Before the meeting they did a day of work at Saguaro National Park, clearing the Cactus Forest Trail of plants encroaching into the trail corridor. This consisted of lopping and sawing a variety of spiny plants and then moving or throwing the cut pieces out of sight. The day was beautiful, the Sonoran Desert was lush, and the thorns were sharp!
