River Run Network Overview

The River Run Network is a group of people working together to restore Tucson's heritage of flowing creeks and rivers - which means restoring the Santa Cruz River and its tributaries!
Join the collective movement to conserve water, recharge our aquifer, and restore the Sonoran Desert. RRN membership is free and gives you access to exclusive creek walks, river restoration workshops, river clean-ups, and advocacy opportunities. Explore this online platform to learn more about restoration targets, priority actions, and progress towards our goal.

Join the River Run Network

The River Run Network includes all of the Tucson basin, with a focus on target restoration areas, called streamsheds. Streamsheds are specific stream sections and the adjacent land area that most influences the stream hydrology. The streamsheds are delineated by areas that have common hydrologic characteristics and flow restoration goal.

Find and explore your streamshed on the map below.
