Recharge the Rain

Recharge the Rain is a program under Arizona Project Wet that formed in partnership with a NOAA Environmental Literacy Grant in 2017. Recharge the Rain seeks to monitor rain garden installations at six different K-12 school sites throughout Tucson as a way to collect data on the impacts of rainwater harvesting systems on heat, moisture, phenology, and pollinators. This information will contribute to a continuing effort to support STEM education within TUSD schools and provide continuing education opportunities to the teachers who will take on this observation protocol in their classrooms.
