We are excited to announce the release of the bilingual book Guess That Arroyo: Tucson!
Produced by Worker, Inc. in partnership with Watershed Management Group, this book is a culmination of a series of creek walks and a collection of stories from the community of Tucson and beyond. We want to celebrate the arroyos of Tucson with you, students and teachers from Sky Island High School and Wakefield Middle School, and those who took the time to share their memories of the arroyos for this project. This book includes a series of photographs of 12 arroyos (creeks) in Tucson, creating a fun guessing game that asks the reader to identify them on a map.
During this celebration, you’ll hear from artist, architect and CAPLA lecturer Bill Mackey, from Worker, Inc., and special guest Joaquin Murrieta, Borderlands Restoration Network conservation director. They will discuss the creation of the book, and talk about Tucson's creeks, their integral relationship to our urban landscape and how they connect us all together as a community. We will also play “Guess That Arroyo” with you during this event, with the chance to win a copy of the book. Production of the book was also assisted by Christian Aguilar Murrieta '23 MLA.
Funding for this project is made possible through a grant from the Southwestern Foundation for Education and Historical Preservation.
This event is organized through WMG’s River Run Network.
