Hang out on EXO’s patio to decorate your bike for the Gila Topminnow Returns Bike Ride (Saturday, June 16). Celebrate the return of the fish (thanks to YOUR wastewater) to the Santa Cruz River with a commemorative cocktail, created especially in the fish’s honor by Vadi Erdal and Amy Rude-Smith at EXO.

We’ll toast to the fish at EXO and provide supplies and inspiration.

Use #GilaTopminnow to document your experiences and the topminnow, when you see one, on social media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter). The fish won’t see it, but the people will.

This event is the first of 3 celebrating the topminnow and new artwork on the Loop path:

Backstory:
The Gila Topminnow, a tiny Sonoran Desert native fish was discovered in the flowing stretch of the river in Tucson (just north of Sweetwater Wetlands) in November after 70 years away. Its return is thanks to improvements to the Pima County wastewater treatment plant, which put cleaner water into the riverbed, creating the preferred habitat for the fish, plus a flowing river for the rest of us!

In June, a new project brings artwork honoring the fish and its return to the “living river” to the Loop Path and to urban locations around town.

The project is a collaboration between local artist Kimi Eisele, the Pima County Office of Sustainability and Conservation, the Sonoran Institute, with funding from the Center for Performance and Civic Practice’s Catalyst Initiative.
