Greater Rio Grande Watershed Alliance

The Greater Rio Grande Watershed Alliance (GRGWA) is a collaboration of soil and water conservation districts (SWCDs), Pueblos, agencies, and stakeholders along the Middle Rio Grande Watershed working on landscape-scale watershed restoration, with a focus on non-native phreatophyte removal from the bosque. They use a variety of techniques including extraction, mastication, aerial, basal, foliar, and cut-stump herbicide applications and planting grass, shrubs and trees. They follow community, statewide and national management and conservation plans, and also seek to monitor the effectiveness of their restoration efforts.
