Desert River Reborn - Local Water Supplies Shape the Future
The good news keeps coming for our rivers this year. In June, we celebrated the launch of the Santa Cruz Heritage Project, releasing recycled water into the river to support perennial ow through downtown Tucson. Now we learn another stretch of the Santa Cruz River is also owing regularly, thanks to restored groundwater levels.
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.
