River Source


(October 2008) River Source offered the annual New Mexico Watershed Watch train-the-trainer session on the Mora River at the wonderful Wind River Ranch in September 2007 and 2008. Additional trainings have also occurred in August 2009 and 2010. Highlights from the trainings include a walk of the wetlands in Petroglyph Canyon, benthic macroinvertebrate sampling and sorting to 6 key groups, wetlands and fisheries habitat monitoring, and chemical and physical analysis to assess the health of local watersheds. Thanks to Brian Miller, the Wind River Ranch Foundation, and the Thaw Foundation for your tremendous hospitality. The 2011 training will be held from Thursday, August 4th-6th.
