Guest Speaker:  Connecting People to Water to Our Rivers

Trevor Hare, a river restoration biologist with the Watershed Management Group, graduated from U of A in 1991 with a degree in ecology and studied for 10 years the impact of
suburban development on rattlesnakes and Gila monsters. Over the last 25 years, he’s practiced riparian and upland restoration in our region, and the methodology he’s developed has
resulted in over $2 million of restoration work in our region.

Hare said the River Run Network is all about keeping water in the Tucson basin, about restoring Tucson’s heritage of flowing creeks and rivers. The primary technique is slowing the
flow down at strategic points and allowing the water to soak in. The Network tries to raise awareness and develop connections between organizations, communicate restoration
opportunities and goals, connect individual actions (like home landscaping) to watershed health goals, prioritize restoration actions, and highlight restoration progress.

He showed slides that made clear the changes between the early 1900’s and present day: we no longer have cottonwoods in downtown Tucson, for example. But if in a number of
streamsheds the water can be slowed down (simple rock barriers) and fed back into the aquifer, made shallower and wider, erosion can be slowed and riparian ecology can return.

Last year the Rotary Spaghetti Spree was a tremendous success. We had
planned for about 300 people but served nearly 450. At one point Dave Polsky
went out to buy an extra 30 lbs of (dry) spaghetti. The Spaghetti Spree has
been an annual Rotary Club of Green Valley fundraiser for many years, and is
one of our favorite events. This year the event will be held on January 16 from
4:30 - 7:00 PM. You can get your tickets in advance from any of our members.
Clothes for Kids:
Past President (x2) Dick Roberts reported that our Clothes
for Kids project, which happened Saturday December 8 at
Walmart, provided much needed clothes for 14 kids from
Continental School, at an average of $114 per child. Dick
thanked all the Club members who helped.
