Come Visit Our Living Lab

WMG’s Living Lab is our demonstration site of hydro-local living and watershed resilience, as well as our office space. The campus is supported by rainwater for all indoor and outdoor needs almost year-round, and includes extensive rain gardens, a native food forest, a 10,000 gallon underground cistern, art exhibits about Tucson’s history of flowing creeks and rivers, a kids’ play area, composting toilets, and so much more.

How To Visit

Come see how we live hydro-local on a guided tour! We offer scheduled tours of the Living Lab led by WMG Docents and staff, as well as self-paced audio tours. All of our tours happen completely outdoors, so please be prepared for the weather. Most of the tour will be walking around the Living Lab, but there will be space for sitting or resting as needed.

Scheduled Tours

Our guided Living Lab Tours happen every 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month. You’ll be led through our demonstration site by one of our Docents to learn about our many water harvesting systems firsthand. On the 1st Saturday of the month, join us for How Low Can You Go? an interactive exploration of the various systems we employ to reduce our dependency on city water and distant watersheds to start thinking about what you might do in your own home and neighborhood.   See our upcoming tour dates and register to attend below.

Self-Paced Audio Tours

Explore the Living Lab at your own pace while reading interpretive signage, or use your smartphone to listen to our 45-minute audio tour in English or Spanish. You can drop in during our regularly scheduled open hours (9:30a.m,-5p.m., Monday-Friday) and enjoy our space. Learn more about our self-paced tours here.
