Sabino Creek Is Dry — Almost!   13 comments


This was Sabino Creek on September 14th . . .


. . . this was Sabino Creek, October 27th. There was a nice flow after late monsoon rains in September, but as noted in this morning’s Arizona Daily Star, “A brief autumn dry-up of the stream is not uncommon after monsoon rains end. But this year’s rains were sketchy in the canyon, and the forecast shows no promise of moisture to turn the flow on again anytime soon.” (Click here to read more.


The creek has been without a flow since mid-October, making it a little difficult for the Sabino Canyon Volunteer Naturalists (SCVN) to conduct one of their elementary school children activities, “Creek Critters,” this past week.


However, a few ponds of water remain, so the schedule of activities along the creek continued.

There was plenty of water for the kids to have fun learning about the unique aquatic and riparian habitats in a desert environment. Few things can out do a day in Sabino Canyon, water flowing or not!
