It’s going to be a HOT one!! 
From Caliente Hill Wash to Agua Caliente Wash. 

In the Spring of 2017, a rain garden was implemented at Hermosa Montessori School with collaboration between the students, staff and parents. It was named the Hermosa Monarch Waystation. Earlier this year, a series of one rock dams were implemented (with help from these students) to help slow, spread and infiltrate the storm water for the plants at the waystation. On this creek walk, come and experience how Hermosa Montessori and other schools are collaborating to restore the flow in Tucson. Listen to representatives of Hermosa Montessori School express their point of view on education and the connection to water harvesting and river restoration. Then, join Cultural Ecologist Joaquin Murrieta and Hermosa Montessori School Representatives on a walk through the Agua Caliente Wash.
