Rivers and Birds provide hands-on environmental education that celebrates the interconnection of all life and advocates for the conservation and restoration of our public lands. Rivers & Birds also initiated and organized our culturally-diverse community in Taos County for several federal land protection efforts (the establishment of the 252,000-acre Rio Grande del Norte National Monument, the 45,000 acre Columbine Hondo Wilderness passed in 2014, the 13,000 acre Cerro de la Olla Wilderness still awaiting passage in Congress, the 8,120-acre Rio San Antonio Wilderness and the 13,420-acre Ute Mountain Wilderness – both of which were established in 2019). To date, Rivers & Birds’ culturally-diverse community for public land advocacy has led to the establishment of 308,000 acres of public lands in the past ten years.
