Healthy waters are crucial for anglers, recreationists, and our wildlife. Whether you fish, float, or just enjoy watching a river flowing, we’re protecting your waters from development, pollution, and private interests trying to deny access.

Water is of the utmost importance in New Mexico and across the southwest. Proper management and collaboration are the only way forward if we are going to continue to thrive in this part of the country.

The New Mexico Wildlife Federation is working on stream access issues, opposing the proposed diversion of the Gila River – the last free-flowing river in the state, and the protection of wilderness which will keep watersheds healthy across New Mexico.
