Spring environmental flows and learning the river’s secrets – northern NM kids get outdoors

We are lucky to get some good press and collaborative support to do the work we do with youth!  This last week the Chama River is getting first ever environmental flows and Carlos and I were lucky to be with Tara and her Escalante Lobos students to learn about geology, water chemistry, aquatic organisms and fisheries.  Uncle Steve Harris said the about 2,000 cfs flows are designed to clear fine materials out of many of the sedimented in fish-egg rearing areas.
