Streams of Life
Riparian habitats are streams of life in our arid state. We must protect these rare areas and the wildlife that depend on them.
- Visit wetlands, streams, lakes and springs to see Arizona's important riparian habitats.
- Remember that in riparian habitats, toxic compounds are filtered out of water and plants stabilize stream bank soil.
- Pick a riparian area to study. Take note of how it is used and how it changes over time.
