WMG Needs Volunteers for Rillito River Restoration Project

Volunteers needed for restoration workshops. Watershed Management Group and Pima County Flood Control District are working on a restoration project along the Rillito River, and need volunteers to help with plantings on Saturday, August 24, from 7 a.m. to noon. WMG’s River Restoration Biologist Trevor Hare and Project Designer Nicole Casebeer will lead volunteers in creating a native plant oasis to help restore the Rillito River's rich riparian ecosystem. Volunteers will help beautify and enhance community recreational amenities, help rebuild riparian habitat, and improve water infiltration. This project is part of WMG’s River Run Network efforts to restore flow to Tucson’s rivers and streams. Details and registration here or contact Nicole Casebeer at 396-3266 x5 or ncasebeer@watershedmg.org.
