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.

The next regular meeting is scheduled for July 13, 2018.
If not already posted here, an agenda may be picked up in the District office located at Natural Resource Conservation Center, 1206 South Highway 55, Mountainair, NM.  

District meetings are held at the Natural Resource Conservation Center, located at 1206 South Highway 55, Mountainair, NM 87036. District meetings are open to the public as described in the CPSWCD Open Meetings Resolution. Regular meetings generally occur on the first Friday of each month.
