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.
