Welcome back readers!
Construction for the wetland has been in full swing for the past week or so, which is why I haven’t been writing. The project is coming along really well, and we should be on schedule for unveiling at Earth Day (see note). I’ve been working for the last week on hauling pumps, tanks, and rock to the site and preparing the exhibit. I’m pleased to announce that we should have water and power this week, so testing can begin. The Tucson Watergardeners have agreed to donate time and plants this weekend, which is fantastic. Feel free to check out the pictures following; I’ll be posting more as we get further along.
NOTE: Earth Day will be held at Biosphere 2 on April 17th from 10am to 4pm. This event includes live music, demonstration and booths with green technology and innovations from the local community, science talks from the University of Arizona, and more. This event is kid-friendly, so please feel free to bring the entire family. You can read more here: http://www.b2science.org/b2/earth10.html
