Santa Cruz River Research Days

The Santa Cruz River is a visible green ribbon of life connecting the U.S. (Arizona) and Mexico (Sonora), bridging rural and urban landscapes, joining together diverse stakeholders, and providing important riparian habitat for wildlife. The Santa Cruz River is critical to the ecological integrity of southeastern Arizona and northwestern Sonora. Numerous groups are conducting research, monitoring, restoration, and other collaborative conservation actions along the Santa Cruz River.

Each spring, Tumacácori National Historical Park, Sonoran Institute, Friends of the Santa Cruz River, Pima County, and Arizona State Museum and other partners host the annual Santa Cruz River Research Days. Research Days provides an opportunity for those conducting monitoring, research, or studies along the Santa Cruz River to share their work and findings through technical presentations.
