Insights to the Outdoors: The Verde
April 16, 2019 at 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
with Dr. Nancy Steele and Dr. Maxwell Wilson
Water is an increasingly precious commodity in Arizona’s harsh landscape. The Verde River, Arizona’s last free flowing waterway, provides a dramatic contrast to the rocky and dry expanses. Its green channels support myriads of plants and animals, water farms, ranches, and vineyards, and increasingly attracts visitors to swim, fish, kayak, and play. And yet, this water source is in danger. In this interactive workshop you’ll learn more about the Verde River watershed and hear stories of people working to save the Verde.
