Sweetwater Wetlands Activity Book and Field Guide
The Sweetwater Wetlands is a water treatment facility, an urban wildlife habitat, and an outdoor classroom. Treated water from Sweetwater Wetlands is recharged and reclaimed for reuse throughout the City's golf courses, parks, and schools. The wetlands are also a tranquil park where visitors can view wildlife in a lush, riparian habitat. In addition, Sweetwater Wetlands is a natural laboratory where visitors can observe and study wildlife, water resources, and riparian natural history.

To help visitors learn more about wetland ecology and wildlife, Tucson Water is pleased to provide the Sweetwater Wetlands Activity Book and Field Guide. The Activity Book and Field Guide targets middle school audiences, but may be used by any visitors interested in learning more about the Sweetwater Wetlands. Educators will find the guide useful for preparing groups for a field trip or for studying wetlands in the classroom.
