River Run Network Restoration Workshop: Pantano Jungle Round Two

Event Date:
Saturday, January 29, 2022 - 8:00am to 12:00pm
Event Address:
Marsh Station Rd/Cienega Creek
Tucson, AZ 85641

Spend a Saturday in the beautiful Cienega Creek and help restore this beautiful oasis. At one time, Cienega Creek was a beautiful marsh, filled with lush plants, many species, and year-round flowing water. WMG is working to restore this area by slowing, spreading, and sinking the flow into the ground with rock structures. Today, Cienega Creek Natural Conservation Area is a wildlife and riparian preserve. It is home to an astonishing array of plants and animals, including lowland leopard frogs, Gila topminnows, turkeys, lions, bears, and coatis. Join James Lauder, WMG's Project Manager to help him move toward our goal to restore flow to the area.

This restoration project is made possible thanks to grant funding through Arizona Department of Environmental Quality.
