Tucson C2E is seeking community leaders with ideas on how to improve local rivers and washes. In 2013, the Tucson C2E program will invest funds raised from C2E participants and the Tucson Water bill check box to fund Community Enhancement Projects. Community Enhancement Projects will directly benefit a neighborhood’s natural areas and waterways through conservation and restoration practices. More information about the grant process will be covered at the workshop; please come with your project ideas to discuss with the C2E team.
