ORO VALLEY, AZ (Tucson News Now) - An award-winning program that saves and preserves many native plants from work and construction sites asks for the public's help with an upcoming event.

The next Save-A-Plant event will be held July 12 and July 13 from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the Maracay at the Vistoso subdivision site on the northern end of La Cañada Drive in Rancho Vistoso.

Anyone who wants a list of the available plants can contact the Town of Oro Valley Development and Infrastructure Services Department at (520) 229-4800 or visit their office at 11000 N. La Cañada Drive. Oro Valley officials encourage participants to bring their own shovels, gloves and pitchforks and wear attire for hot temperatures and rugged desert terrain.

For more information regarding the program, call Rosevelt Arellano at (520) 229-4817 or email rarellano@orovalleyaz.gov.
