Rebirth of the Santa Cruz River and the Return of Aquatic Species Virtual Presentation This Week

The next monthly virtual meeting of the Santa Cruz Watershed Collaborative features Dr. Michael T. Bogan from the University of Arizona speaking about the “Rebirth of the Santa Cruz River and the Return of Aquatic Species.” Dr. Bogan’s presentation takes place Wednesday, June 3, from 3:30 to 4:15 p.m., with time for questions. He will be speaking about the rapid return of dragonflies and other aquatic species since the Santa Cruz River Heritage Project was launched in Downtown Tucson.

The project restored perennial flow to the river via the discharge of treated effluent, and many aquatic species have returned after more than a 100-year absence.

Tucson Water is a member of the collaborative.

Register in advance for the free event.
