Friday August 26 ~ Water Sentinels Benefit Concert ~
8:00 pm, Arizona’s rivers need you! And you can help just by enjoying some great music in a great venue for a great cause: The Sierra Club - Grand Canyon (Arizona) Chapter Arizona Water Sentinels! Music will be flowing all evening, from Pick & Holler with Old Time Appalachian music; Begged and Borrowed, with folk, traditional and Irish tunes; and De Mairt Coel, a group of Irish traditional musicians who are the resident band for the third Friday ceili dances at the Phoenix Irish Cultural Center.
Water is life in the desert. Arizona's rivers and streams have been impacted by pollution, diversion, groundwater pumping and erosion. The Arizona Water Sentinels Program is doing hands-on conservation work to protect Arizona’s precious waters. Our mission is to protect, improve, and restore Arizona rivers and streams. We collect water quality data, perform stream clean-ups, work on invasive species eradication, conduct revegetation projects and monitor water policies at the state and federal levels and speak up for the health of our rivers!
The first Water Sentinels Benefit Concert was planned Steve Pawlowski, former Water Sentinels coordinator, who had a true passion for nature and the outdoors, and especially our rivers. He dedicated his life to making the world a better place. He had talked about making it an annual event. Steve passed away before that could happen, but we would like to honor his life and his work, and his love of music, and continue hosting this event annually.
A minimum donation of $30 is requested at the door or via this link:
which will help the Water Sentinels continue our good work. If you use the donation link, just print your confirmation receipt and we will honor that as a ticket. Doors open at 6:30 pm. Your RSVP will help us plan. Last year we filled every seat in the small room, so we will be holding the concert in the big room this year. If you pay with a personal check, please make it out to Sierra Club Foundation and write ARIZONA WATER SENTINELS in the memo line. Tell your friends!
