Water Gratitude Walk on the Santa Cruz River (south of 29th St/Silverlake)
January 29 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
The Santa Cruz river has had a flow of water between 29th and 22nd street almost continuously since last February. Some willows and a few young cottonwood sprouts have already appeared. Coyotes, Rabbits, Birds and other species are present (and well fed with the greenery).
*[The Santa Cruz River Heritage project](https://www.tucsonaz.gov/water/SCRHP) describes the scene this way:*
*The Santa Cruz River Heritage Project is an excellent example of how Tucson Water continues to ensure reliable water resources for our community. The project adds up to 2.8 million gallons of treated recycled water daily (3,150 acre feet a year) to the Santa Cruz River at a point south of downtown near the heart of the city. This added water brings perennial flow to this portion of the river, fostering abundant native vegetation and wildlife.*
Join us Sunday, January December 29 at 12:00 pm. as we acknowledge the water flow that now assists the healing of this too long dry riverbed. We meet in the parking area (see below for specific spot to meet) and at 12:05 we will walk down into the river bed to get a close look and offer gratitude. We will stroll/meander on the walk above, and down along the river at a gentle pace towards 29th. On the way back, anyone who wants to can pick up some trash for the trash bin by the parking. We will bring small bags.
**Please wear walking shoes and take care of yourself with the weather.**
***We will meet in the horse unloading parking lot north of the food bank community garden and south of the river park parking lot/restrooms on Cottonwood road off of Silverlake (29th street} on the west side of the river bridge.* See map below. Text Quynn at 520=954-2004 if you cannot find us.**
