Water means life here in the desert. Where there’s water, you’ll find our super important riparian areas… 

If you’re in Arizona and want to know where the water is, just look for ribbons of green that cut across the desert landscape. These riparian areas (streamside habitat) are VITAL to our wildlife.

Yep, Arizona’s water users not only include the 7 million people who live here, but also nearly 5,000 species of native animals and plants. Amazingly, Arizona is in the top five states when it comes to BIODIVERSITY!

 Recently I visited the Casa Grande Ruins National Park with my Girl Scout Troop. It was very fun and the sites were amazing.

There were many structures that the Sonoran Desert People’s ancestors built a long time ago. There were many small and regular houses and there was one called the ‘Big House.’ The Big House is where the people gathered if they needed a meeting or to get together. All of the houses were made out of a claymud substance.
