New Editions of Sweetwater Wetlands Booklets Available Now

Tucson Water has produced new editions of its two booklets on the Sweetwater Wetlands recharge facility. “Water, Wildlife, and People” is designed for adults and includes background information and a field guide to common plants and animals of the Wetlands. The “Activity Book and Field Guide” is for middle school educators and students preparing for a field trip or studying about wetlands in the classroom.

Both publications feature information on how Sweetwater Wetlands creates a water-rich streamside riparian zone that supports a huge variety of wildlife. The booklets also show the connection between surface water and groundwater, as well as how water is managed in Tucson.
