River Run Network Restoration Workshop: Pantano Jungle Round Two

Event Date:
01/29/2022 - 8:00am

Spend a Saturday in the beautiful Cienega Creek and help restore this beautiful oasis. At one time, Cienega Creek was a beautiful marsh, filled with lush plants, many species, and year-round flowing water. WMG is working to restore this area by slowing, spreading, and sinking the flow into the ground with rock structures.

Using a Dry Irrigation Ditch to Restore a Historic Tucson Mesquite Grove

For well over a century, the Corbett Irrigation Ditch carried water from Tanque Verde Creek to the old Fort Lowell neighborhood, where it nourished farmland and helped to sustain a thick forest of native velvet mesquite trees. Now a group of residents, historians and conservationists have launched a campaign to restore the trees and fill the ditch with water again for the first time since it mysteriously ran dry roughly a decade ago.
