Arizona Land and Water Trust has been hosting Virtual Happy Hours for its supporters since May of 2020 as a way to stay in touch with you during a time of social distancing. This highly successful program has been a journey through presentations ranging from local wildlife, Trust partnerships, award winning photography to rainfall research.
