Project Description


Co-Chair Ashley Camhi lead the way to providing an active outlet for our organization through the Tempe Adopt A Park program.

AZSA has adopted a park in Tempe on the south side of Rio Salado which goes west from the Tempe Center for the Arts to Priest Drive. The program includes removal of invasive plant species, undergrowth, and trash, along with pruning dried flower stocks off the Red Yucca when in season, sweeping sidewalks, replacing trees, and other general maintenance as needed. This will allow Tempe to introduce native plants, which in turn will bring back native insect and animals. It will also increase the diversity in the park, make it sustainable and encourage people to spend time in them.
