New Mexico Agricultural and Natural Resources Trust Fund Act
New Mexico’s land and water form the foundation of our communities, and yet without investing in both, we risk our future and that of our children. The New Mexico Agricultural and Natural Resources Trust Fund Act would turn a temporary boom in state oil & gas revenue into a permanent source of funds for the state's renewable resources. The New Mexico legislature is set to decide on the fate of this bill by February 20th.
Habitat Conservation Strategies for Migrating Wildlife
Landowner perspectives gained in one-on-one interviews and focus groups throughout the Upper Rio Grande form the foundation of a toolkit of strategies for policymakers, funders, and organizations looking to improve wildlife habitat in this dynamic trans-boundary region of Colorado and New Mexico. The recommendations are applicable to many other regions of the West where migratory wildlife are a conservation concern.
