restoration rewildOur restoration work continues to restore streams and improve wildlife habitat, especially in Valles Caldera National Preserve in New Mexico’s Jemez Mountains. In 2013 we planted more than 50,000 trees to stabilize streambanks and increase shading, both of which help to improve water quality.

WildEarth Guardians staff are also removing 10 miles of unneeded fence and replacing an additional 6 miles of barbed-wire fence and converting it to make it more wildlife friendly.

WildEarth Guardians is grateful to our partners, New Mexico Youth Conservation Corp (YCC), New Mexico Environment Department, American Forest Global ReLeaf Program, and the Valles Caldera National Preserve as we work to preserve to improve watershed health and wildlife habitat in the Valles Caldera.
