TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

There's a new plan to protect one of Southern Arizona's natural wonders.

Saguaro National Park plans to release a restoration plan and environmental assessment plan Friday for public comment.

The document includes plans to restore natural vegetation, and to reduce potential damage from fire, flood and invasive species. One of the actions includes aerial spraying of chemicals to get rid of buffelgrass in areas that ground crews cannot reach.

The public comment period will run through February 24.
