Rio Chama Congresso 2021

Feb. 27, Mar. 2, Mar. 10, Mar. 13 (Virtual)

Our sixth annual Rio Chama Watershed Partnership Congreso is being held virtually through four 2-hour long sessions, across a period of two weeks, beginning on February 27, 2021. This year's theme is focused on "Uniting our Watershed" and the Partnership has invited local landowners, state and federal agency representatives, business owners, students, and educators young and old, to share with us their experiences in our shared landscape.

The Congreso concept is that collaborative decision-making can combine local knowledge with scientific management to sustain indigenous cultures, provide educational and economic opportunity for young residents and protect our resources. Details.
