Continuing Success

We have received the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) Environmental Excellence Award, the Bureau of Land Management's (BLM's) Legacy of the Land Award, and also the BLM Director's 4 C's Award (Communication, Consultation and Cooperation, all in the service of Conservation).

In 2003, the Rio Puerco was one of 20 watersheds nationwide to receive an EPA Watershed Initiative grant. Our watershed was targeted because of our innovative, low-technology erosion control methods that make use of available materials. We are demonstrating the effectiveness of these techniques through landowner demonstration projects, workshops, and summer youth projects.
