Taking the Lead in New Mexico

The Claunch-Pinto Soil and Water Conservation District in Mountainair, New Mexico, was first in the nation to sign a memorandum of understanding with the USDA Forest Service and State conservation agencies. Now the district is a leader in healthy forests work in New Mexico. Fuels reduction, removal of invasive species, and reintroduction of native species and assemblages are of paramount importance to CPSWCD's conservation efforts. The work, funded by USDA Forest Service, the State Forestry office and State grants, provides a direct financial benefit to private landowners in an area with many low- and moderate-income residents. Grants have exceeded $1 million. Cost-sharing is provided to encourage fuels reduction and ecological restoration on private lands.
