You’ve heard it often enough before: Water is life. Nowhere is that more true than here in the Sky Island of the arid Southwestern US and Northern Mexico. We’d like to share some of the inspiring and tangible actions being taken by our diverse partners to ensure a secure water future for the wildlife, landscapes, and human populations of this unique region.
Spring is for celebrating our springs!
Join us for a series of presentations, discussions, and citizen science events in Tucson to hear and share stories about water and nature in the Sky Islands. The UN honors World Water Day annually on March 22nd , and this year’s theme is Water for Nature. We would be honored to have you celebrate with us.
Check back here for updates as we add new Water Roots 2018 events and presentations or sign up for our email newsletter to stay up-to-date on all the SPRING fun!

Help us build a vision of what water means to you with photos. Even though water is priceless, we do put value on it—the question is how? In our complex political and monetary system, are your values reflected?
Submit your photo of water and THREE words to describe it or how you value water by May 31st. With your photo submission and choice words, we will start linking people’s value of water to a sustainable vision for Arizona.
