Amigos Bravos actively monitors planning and project related environmental review processes on public lands in New Mexico. We are currently engaged in Forest Planning on the Carson and Santa Fe National Forests where we are advocating for strong water quality provisions that protect watershed health, and promote resiliency and adaptation. As part of the forest planning process, we are also advocating to maintain and expand Wild and Scenic River protections and fighting proposals to drastically reduce Wild and Scenic Rivers Act protections for many streams on the Carson National Forest. We are also engaged in tracking and commenting on other National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) reviews for numerous projects on public lands ranging from transmission lines to thinning projects.
As part of our engagement in the forest planning process, Amigos Bravos has also been working to build public support for Wetland Jewel Management Areas for both Forests and a Valle Vidal Management Area for the Carson National Forest. Read More >
