4th Annual Wet/Dry Walk of upper Cienega Creek

The Bureau of Land Management, The Nature Conservancy and Master Watershed Program are pleased to invite volunteers to help with the 4th annual wet-dry walk of upper Cienega Creek on the Las Cienegas National Conservation Area southeast of Tucson.

Las Cienegas harbors between 6 and 10 miles of perennial stream, depending on drought and other factors.

Annual mapping of perennial surface waters helps managers understand effects of these factors on stream systems and the wildlife that depends upon them. This year’s survey will be Saturday June 13.

We will meet at Empire Ranch Headquarters at Las Cienegas National Conservation Area.
We will have 2 carpool meetings locations:
6:00 a.m. – Central Tucson at The Nature Conservancy, 1510 E. Ft. Lowell Road Tucson, AZ 85719

6:15 a.m. – East Tucson at the informal park and ride on Houghton Road just north of I-10
