Lowe House, Rio Compartido/Shared River Project: Along the Santa Cruz River - We Live Here!
Tubac Presidio State Historic Park
Saturday, November 9, 2019
Join us for a celebration with a purpose—to educate people reliant on water and resources to
educate our shared responsibility that ensures the future of the cultural and environmental
life-sustaining gifts the Santa Cruz River provides.
Experience this fabulous day-long village-wide event that will have exhibits, lectures, performing arts, films, educational workshops and activities in celebration of the Santa Cruz River. The day-long celebration is to be both complementary to the Smithsonian Water/Ways exhibit, hosted by the Tubac Presidio Park, as well as serve to be an educational message of the need to cherish and protect our local waterways—the Santa Cruz River.
Activities scheduled throughout the day, and conducted by members of Tubac’s relevant non-profit organizations, are intended to highlight the rich cultural and environmental heritage of the bi-national waterway—one shared with US/Mexico Borderlands, Tubac and communities all along the river’s 185-mile stretch. Stay tuned for the official schedule of events! For more info contact [email protected]
