River Description

For information, see New Mexico Whitewater, by NM State Parks & Rivers of The Southwest, by Anderson and Hopkinson.
Previously, this was described as "Rio Lucio to Rio Grande Confluence." However, Rio Pueblo does not flow to the Rio Grande; it flows to Embudo Creek, which in turn runs to the Rio Grande. Looking at the topo maps, it looks as though all the good stuff on El Rio Pueblo is upstream of Rio Lucio, maybe from Tres Ritos (36.12800, -105.50967) downstream. Anyone with better beta on this run is invited to share it by adding a comment.

Gila National Forest Releases New Draft Plan, First in 34 Years (NM)

Kestrel Kunz

For the first time in 34 years, the Gila National Forest is revising their forest-wide Management Plan. On Friday, January 17 they officially released the Draft Plan and Draft Environmental Impact Assessment (DEIS) for a 90-day comment period ending on April 16. Forest Plans are vitally important as they are the blueprint for resource management and they provide an opportunity to secure better protections for rivers and their surrounding landscapes. As part of the plan revision process, the Forest Service is required to rely heavily on public input to inform management direction, plan components, and new designated areas. Read more for a complete schedule of Public Meetings that are happening this week!
