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.

 
 

The Rio Puerco is a tributary of the Rio Grande in New Mexico. From its source on the west side of the Nacimiento Mountains, it flows about 230 miles generally south to join the Rio Grande about 20 miles south of Belen and about 50 miles south of Albuquerque.
