Desert dwellers know what a precious resource water is. But do you know where our water comes from and how it gets to your tap? Find out by joining us on a bike cruise along the Arizona Canal, where we'll pedal from Old Town Scottsdale to OHSO Brewery with Valley water experts filling us in on everything you've always wondered about our water system. Along the way, we'll hear from the following:

  • Learn about the canal system from Jim Duncan, Salt River Project Engineer. We’ll stop at the scenic Arizona Falls, the oldest hydro-electric generation site in Phoenix, where we will learn how the Falls combines art, history and technology to generate clean electricity from the canal’s waterfall.

  • Water - Use It Wisely will share information about water conservation in the desert and easy steps we can all take to be more water aware.

  • Watershed Management Group will share information on rainwater harvesting and how you can create landscape features that preserve our watershed.

  • OHSO Brewery will be sharing their beer made with Sinagua Malt, a water conserving malt grown in the Verde Valley and talking about water in the beer making process.

The bike ride is approximately seven miles roundtrip.
