Tanque Verde Flow & Feast on Earth Day!

Event Date:
Saturday, April 21, 2018 - 5:00pm to 9:00pm
Event Address:
Isabella Lee Natural Preserve
End of N Bonanza Ave, off of E Tanque Verde Rd - just west of La Mariposa Resort
Tucson, AZ 85715

Join us for Earth Day and WMG’s 3rd Annual Tanque Verde Flow and Feast at Isabella Lee Nature Preserve. This free, family-friendly event features creek walks, a catered dinner with local flavors from the renowned Tumerico, craft beer, live Sonoran-soul music by Carlos Arzate, and star gazing. 

Like many creeks and rivers in the Tucson region, this sensitive riparian area once flowed for most of the year. But today, due to heavy groundwater pumping, Tanque Verde Creek only flows after major storms. During this fun and enlightening event, we will explore our connections to flowing desert creeks and discover ways we - as a community - can help restore them through WMG's River Run Network.
