HOBO_talk_2PM_lgThe Santa Cruz River has long been the backbone of the region’s natural and cultural heritage. This river is a living entity that continues to support wildlife communities along its course. It is both a living landmark of the ancient past and a life-giving promise to the future generations.

Join Claire Zugmeyer, an ecologist with the Sonoran Institute, to learn more about this iconic and integral life source. Although the river has changed since humans’ first arrival to the region 12,000 years ago, the river still thrives as an ecological center. The Living River annual reports chart the status of the Lower Santa Cruz River by presenting data on indicators of wetland health with easy to follow text and engaging graphics. Attendees will find this presentation both informative and inspiring. Come learn about the great improvements happening on the Santa Cruz!

Presentations at 12 noon and 2 PM.
