The mission of the Hermit’s Peak Watershed Alliance is to foster land stewardship to ensure the long-term vitality of the human and natural communities of the Hermit’s Peak region, specifically the Gallinas, Sapello and Tecolote watersheds.

WHAT IS A WATERSHED?

A watershed is a region of land that drains to a particular body of water such as a river or a lake. Rain or snow that falls anywhere in that watershed eventually flows to that water body. It may travel overland as surface water or flow underground as groundwater.  The Gallinas watershed is all the land from the top of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains to the valley bottoms that drain into the Gallinas River.
