The Tucson Active Management Area covers 3,866 square miles in southern Arizona. The Tucson AMA is one of five AMAs in the state that were established pursuant to the 1980 Groundwater Management Act.

 

The Tucson community has come together to continue the Xeriscape contest.  The Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, Tohono Chul Park and Tucson Botanical Gardens, and Association of Professional Landscape Designers (APLD) have teamed up to organize and promote the contest. 

For information, rules, entry forms and prizes, visit http://www.desertmuseum.org/xeriscape/ or call (520) 880-3010.
