The fourth annual Rio Chama Watershed Congreso is to be held February 23, 2019 from 8 am to 5 pm at Ghost Ranch in Abiquiu, New Mexico. This years theme is focused on Infrastructure and the ways lives are impacted by the different forms of Infrastructure.

The congreso concept is that collaborative decision-making can combine local knowledge with scientific management to sustain indigenous cultures, provide educational and economic opportunity for young residents and protect our resources. Last years event focused "Fire and Water - Building Resilience on Our Landscape".

You are invited to participate! Together with students and other citizens, agencies (Forest Service, Game and Fish, State Engineer) and non-governmental organizations (Rio Grande Water Fund, NM Association of Conservation Districts, Chama Peak Land Alliance, Rio Grande Restoration, and others) help to decide how to best address our water and land management challenges in the Chama Basin.

Please SHARE this invitation and if you find others in your community or agency are also interested, by all means urge them to register. There is no charge to participate.
