Take Action Now to Protect The Pecos

The Pecos Wilderness and the surrounding roadless areas are home to a maze of rivers, lakes and streams that contribute to the headwaters of the Pecos River, the Mora River and the Gallinas River.

Activities such as mining, drilling, fracking, road construction and timber harvests have the potential to degrade water quality, affecting major watersheds like the Upper Pecos, the Rio Grande and the Gallinas.  

In addition to the diverse forest ecosystems that thrive in these watersheds, development could affect the water supply for the surrounding counties of Taos, Mora, Rio Arriba, San Miguel and Santa Fe.   

Many acequias in New Mexico receive a significant share of their agricultural acequia water from the Pecos River and its tributaries. Protecting the watersheds will help ensure a key source of irrigation.
