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 you’ll be led around the Living Lab, but there will be space for sitting or resting as needed.
Our guided Living Lab Tours happen every 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month. You’ll be led through our campus by one of our Docents or staff, experiencing our many water harvesting systems firsthand, and you’ll get your questions answered by an expert onsite! See our upcoming tour dates and register to attend below.
