The Río Puerco Alliance is a 501c3 non-profit whose mission is to restore the Río Puerco Watershed in Northwestern New Mexico for present and future generations through outreach, education, and collaborative action. The RPA focuses on developing ecological as well as community resilience within the region as a means of sustainably addressing ever-changing environmental and economic conditions. RPA was organized in 2005 by members of the Rio Puerco Management Committee (RPMC) and interested citizens and incorporated in 2006. We work closely with the RPMC, the Bureau of Land Management, the Ojo Encino Ranchers Committee, the Sierra Club, the Quivira Coalition, Hasbídító, and other local landowners.
