'Ask the Expert' Saturdays at Tohono Chul

Tohono Chul Park is resuming "Ask the Expert," its free opportunity to speak with curator of plants Russ Buhrow about desert landscapes.

The events are held every other Saturday – July 25,  and Aug. 8 and 22 – from 9 a.m. to noon Saturdays at the 7366 N. Paseo del Norte.

"Ever wonder what arid-adapted plants you can purchase to attract butterflies, birds or bats? Or what little pest is destroying your favorite plant or tree?" a release asked.

Buhrow can "answer your questions about those under-performing plants in your backyard, from identifying disease or pest problems, to diagnosing nutrient deficiencies and watering issues," it continued.

"It is also a great time to seek advice on plant selection, getting help finding the perfect plant for your dream garden," it concluded.

Tohono Chul Park is "the desert corner garden where nature, art, and culture connect." For more information on the park, call 742-6455, visit http://www.tohonochulpark.org">www.tohonochulpark.org, or visit in person at 7366 N. Paseo del Norte, one stoplight west of the intersection at Oracle and Ina roads

The Marana capital improvements improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
