Here’s something you might not know, unless you’re a restoration ecologist: Bringing back the beaver isn’t cheap.
In this video, our River Restoration Biologist Trevor Hare is literally standing in the pristine pools where the beaver will be reintroduced in Ciénega Creek, one of the remaining perennial creeks in Southern Arizona.

Rebels for Rain, Let’s Reclaim our Rivers!
When WMG started the Green Living Co-op a decade ago, Tucson was thirsty for rainwater harvesting know-how and we brought it! For the last 10 years, the Co-op has helped push water harvesting from the environmental fringe into the mainstream. During that time, WMG instructors taught 366 water harvesting workshops to thousands of people, creating a groundswell of rebels for rain.
We’re Crafting a 50-Year Roadmap to Restore Tucson’s Rivers!
How do you achieve an audacious 50-year vision? This summer, WMG staff is tackling that question by crafting our 50-year internal strategic plan for the River Run Network. The typical three-year strategic plan won’t cut it; so we’re defining goals, strategies and metrics for 5, 10, 25, and 50-year timelines. Intermediary goals and measurable metrics will ensure we reach our long-term goal of restoring Tucson’s heritage of flowing rivers.
