Riparian Challenge

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!
