We work across jurisdictions, agencies, and communities!
Keystone Restoration Ecology
Keystone Restoration Ecology (KRE) enhances natural and man-made landscapes by harnessing the power of natural processes to repair and regenerate ecosystems through Natural Channel Design and Induced Meandering techniques. KRE has a unique focus on the interactions between the vegetation and ecology of a site and its restoration potential.
Hasbídító is a community derived and managed development group that has been working across three chapters of the eastern Navajo Nation: Counselor, Ojo Encino, Torreon. Hasbídító’s board consists entirely of Navajo people who live in these communities and are representative of the communities’ demographics. Community members have identified food related issues as being a high priority.
Valles Caldera National Preserve
We work with the Valles Caldera National Preserve to restore and preserve wetland and riparian ecosystems. The Preserve is located in the center and at the top of the Jemez Mountains in north-central New Mexico. The 88,900-acre preserve encompasses almost all of the volcanic caldera created by a spectacular volcanic eruption about 1.25 million years ago. The caldera is dormant, but not extinct, and still displays signs of volcanic life with hot springs and boiling sulphuric acid fumaroles. The juxtaposition of large grassland meadows, or valles in Spanish, surrounded by rounded forestcovered volcanic domes provides the distinctive natural landscape that led to the name of Valles Caldera.
