Santa Fe Watershed Association

Since 1997, the Santa Fe Watershed Association has played an integral role in protecting the health and vibrancy of the Santa Fe River and its watershed though education, restoration, stewardship, and advocacy. As they celebrate 25 years, they reflect on victories of all sizes:

·        Protecting the riverbed from gravel mining in Agua Fria

·        Advocating for and helping pass the Living River Ordinance

·        Assisting in the development of a Municipal Watershed Management Plan

·        Supporting and connecting stakeholders from around the watershed through various projects and the Santa Fe River Traditional Communities Collaborative

·        Teaching thousands of 5th graders about water conservation stewardship through the My Water, My Watershed Program

·        Working with thousands of volunteers to remove tens of thousands of pounds of trash from the Santa Fe River and arroyos

·        Constructing over 50 rain gardens around the city to help manage storm water

The Santa Fe Watershed Association is so grateful to their many partners, volunteers, and donors who have made these accomplishments possible, and who continue to support all the work still to do.
