Notes from the Rio: In Stream Flow
It is often said that water is the lifeblood of our rivers and in our moisture-deprived state, these words resound. The timing and endurance of flows in our rivers drives the life cycles of the myriad of species that evolved along our ribbons of life. From the Sandhill Crane to the Rio Grande Silvery Minnow to the Southwestern Willow Flycatcher, the flows in our rivers at the right time, place and amount ensures survival.

Collaborating for Resilience
Have you ever wondered where the fish in the Rio Grande go when the river dries? As the snowpack and monsoon rains become more unpredictable, those of us working along the river often rely on agricultural outfalls, or wasteways, coming off of irrigated farm fields to keep the river wet.
