Watershed Guidance

We work with government entities that affect land stewardship in our watersheds to help guide policy, regulation, funding, and planning to ensure informed, watershed appropriate actions.  Our current efforts in this regard are focused on pursuing funding and helping to initiate the development of a Comprehensive Gallinas Watershed Restoration and Management Plan.  We are also participating in an Update of the Regional Water Plan.

Beyond this our efforts have focused on building relationships with pertinent government entities and looking for opportunities to provide feedback and develop collaborative efforts.  The principle government entities that we have focused on are:

1)Tierra y Montez Soil and Water Conservation District

2)City of Las Vegas

3)San Miguel County – Planning, Floodplain Management, Fire Prevention and Response

4)NM Office of State Engineer

5)US Fish and Wildlife Service
