Río Puerco y Jemez Alliance
Climate adaptation through outreach, education, & collaborative action
We work to create and preserve wetlands in areas where climate and human activities have led to de-watering of the landscape, in doing so restoring soil health, water quality, habitat, and in some of our projects facilitating carbon capture.
We work with communities and youth in the Eastern Navajo Nation to build erosion control and water retention structures, and plant riparian vegetation -- all ways to retain water in the soil and reduce drought.
We support local growers throughout the Rio Puerco Watershed through program support and funding, as well as creating our own inventory of restoration and food vegetation through a plant nursery.
