Through a partner effort, the Rural Conservation Partners Program grant "Building Resiliency in the San Juan - Rio Chama Region" was recently approved for $3.25 million in funding. This grant is a collaborative project to implement on-the-ground conservation practices on forest, range, and irrigated lands across a large region of northern New Mexico and southern Colorado, including the Alliance region. Funding is also available for conservation easements on private lands. The program and application process will be managed by the East Rio Arriba Soil and Water Conservation District.

The National Tropical Botanical Garden has been collecting rare plant data in Hawai`i for over 40 years. When this information is paired with GIS technology, predictive indices can be created. Resulting predictive models indicate that native cliff habitats have a high probability for persisting populations of rare plant species. While this habitat type has been shown to provide endangered plants with refuge from invasive ungulates, surveying these areas has been difficult and treacherous... until now.
