Green Streets and Neighborhoods Festival
Tucson-based nonprofit Watershed Management Group and the Rincon Heights Neighborhood Association are hosting a block party and cookout to celebrate and share their successful model program installing \”green infrastructure\” in the neighborhood. Green infrastructure is vegetated infrastructure that uses natural processes to provide services like flood and pollution reduction, traffic calming, wildlife habitat and neighborhood beautification. The event, which is also a fundraiser to assist Watershed Management Group\’s work to green neighborhoods, will feature neighborhood tours of green infrastructure practices, educational demonstrations, live music, and home-cooked barbecue in a block-party atmosphere.
