Santa Cruz River: Life Blood of the Tucson Valley
The title of this field lab pays homage to the Santa Cruz River which is the central character in the story of Tucson (Chuk-son). This presentation is designed to engage Naturalists in recognizing that the Tucson community is inseparable from the natural ecosystem. Today we will traverse a cross section of the Santa Cruz River from A Mountain to Barrio Viejo and explore the ecological, cultural, physiographic and historical perspectives that make our home in the Sonoran Desert unique.
