TUCSON — The Arizona-Sonoran Desert Museum is about to open its first major new exhibit in a decade.

The museum outside Tucson on Saturday will open its new Warden Aquarium featuring dozens of fish and other creatures, including the Apache trout and the Colorado pikeminnow.

The Arizona Daily Star (http://bit.ly/X0ojer ) says the 1,100-square-foot "Rivers to the Sea" exhibition depicts waterways that once flowed through the Sonoran desert region to the Sea of Cortez.

Desert Museum Executive Director Craig Ivanyi says the project cost $750,000, with the Warden family of Marana donating $400,000 through a foundation.
