Watershed Management Group’s River Run Network: Working to Restore the Flow Upcoming Restoration Workshops, Clean-ups & Creek Walks
Watershed Management Group is thrilled that recycled water is creating flow in the Santa Cruz River through downtown – thanks to Tucson Water and the Santa Cruz Heritage Project! We’d like to invite the Tucson community to learn more about Tucson’s rivers and streams through the River Run Network and the Network’s upcoming events, workshops, and clean-ups.
Knowing that it takes the greater community to reclaim Tucson’s rivers and streams, WMG created the River Run Network in 2016 to engage the public in our efforts to restore heritage flow to Tucson’s waterways. The River Run Network is now close to 1,400 members strong, and offers members opportunities to participate in conservation efforts and learn about restoration solutions through workshops, educational creek walks, and river clean-ups.
Upcoming opportunities to help with river restoration & clean-up work include:
Shamrock Planting & Restoration Work Days Sat, July 27 & Sat, Aug 24 @ 7 a.m.-12 p.m.
