Energy development, both conventional and alternative, plays a significant role in shaping the West’s landscapes and our economy. Western Landowners Alliance does not advocate for or against energy development but rather works to provide landowners a say in designing energy policies that work for landowners and are compatible with the many important values of our working landscapes, including agriculture, water resources, wildlife and recreational opportunities.


Community Values Mapping in the San Juan - Rio Grande

Community values mapping creates transparent and interactive community-driven maps that identify and rank community values on the landscape. This GIS-based map can create a basis for landscape-scale planning, to minimize potential energy development impacts to critical community resources such as municipal water supplies, acequias, moradas, high-value recreation, hunting areas, and agricultural production areas.
