Tree and urban landscapes provide an opportunity for every citizen to contribute to climate resilience through informed plant selection and sustainable management practices. The University of Arizona Campus Arboretum was established to guide science-based urban tree stewardship and to advance conservation best practices for campus and communities throughout the state.
The Big Chino Valley Pumped Storage project is a 2,000MW, 10-hour long duration greenfield pumped storage project being developed in northern Arizona. This project will help integrate the projected increase in renewable generation onto the grid in the desert southwest region of the United States in a cost-effective and efficient manner. The Project is investing a great deal of effort to understand the impacts of withdrawing groundwater for the reservoirs in order to put a mitigation plan in place that will result in a net positive for the water resources and the community in the area.
