The Nature Conservancy’s rainwater-harvesting project includes retrofitting the onsite buildings and the surrounding landscape to capture as much as possible of the approximately 11 inches of annual rainfall on the campus and adjacent areas. The retrofitting involves both active and passive rainwater-harvesting techniques. The Nature Conservancy and its partners see the grounds as a community asset where one can learn about sustainability and common-sense approaches to sustainable design and practices.

The one-hour tour is free to the public. Time is 8 am for all dates. Meet at the front entrance (NE corner) of the building at 1510 E Ft Lowell Road. Groups may schedule tours at times other than those regularly scheduled. For more information on any of these tours, please call 520 547-3437 or send an email to dboone@tnc.org.

May through October 2016 tours are all at 8 a.m. on the 1st Thursday and the 3rd Saturday of the month.
