Assessing the water needs of riparian and wetland vegetation in the western United States
The purpose of this guide is to provide a general foundation for the reader in several interrelated disciplines for the purpose of enabling him/her to characterize and quantify the water needs of riparian and wetland vegetation. Topics discussed are wetland and riparian classification, characteristics and ecology, surface and groundwater hydrology, plant physiology and population and community ecology, and techniques for linking attributes of vegetation to patterns of surface and groundwater and soil moisture.

BLM to Use State, Regional Data in Identifying Wildlife Corridors, Crucial Habitat
Washington, D.C. - The Bureau of Land Management announced today that it will use state and regional data and maps to help it identify wildlife corridors and crucial habitat in future land-use planning and management efforts. The maps will be available for the BLM to use as a result of the Western Wildlife Crucial Habitat Assessment Tool, known as "CHAT", an initiative of the Western Governors' Association. In 2009, the Departments of the Interior, Agriculture and Energy signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Western Governors' Association regarding coordination among federal agencies and states in the identification and uniform mapping of wildlife corridors and crucial habitat. Information developed through the CHAT will facilitate an organized and comprehensive approach to obtaining wildlife-related data and maps by the BLM and other federal agencies. A West-wide CHAT is expected to be available in 2013.
Citizens Watershed Monitoring Team
We're people of northern New Mexico, living in and around the upper Pecos and Canadian River watersheds. A nonprofit organization of young, old and in-between, students and retired people, office workers, engineers and wildlife professionals -- all concerned about the land. Government and private landowners need good information on which to base their decisions for the long-term health of the environment. We do ecological monitoring to help fill that gap. Monitoring is done by community members under the direction of professionals.

Fire Prevention Tips for the outdoors
What do the words “forest and watershed health” mean to you? Not long ago, the health of our forests and water was not a concern for most citizens. But, after several years of drought, highly visible insect and disease devastation and an overall increase in the knowledge of our natural resources, New Mexicans are concerned about our forests and watershed health. We, at New Mexico State Forestry are responsible for wildfire suppression on all non-federal, non-municipal, non-tribal and non-pueblo lands. We also provide technical advice on forest and resource management to private landowners, and may include a commercial timber harvest to enhance wildlife habitat, increase water yield, reduce the hazard of insect infestation, diseases or fire.

Fire Wise Plant Materials
This pamphlet is based on and borrowed heavily from a publication by Chuck Dennis of the Colorado State Forest Service, Colorado State University. Thanks to our neighbors to the north. It contains Fire Wise landscaping information on how landscaping can be aesthetically pleasing while reducing potential wildfire fuel. Plant choice, spacing and maintenance are critical. Your landscape, and the plants in it must be maintained to retain their Fire Wise properties.

Funding Opportunities for Drought Contingency Planning and Resiliency Projects Available from Bureau of Reclamation
The Bureau of Reclamation has made two funding opportunities available to help water users develop drought contingency plans and build long-term drought resiliency as part of Reclamation's Drought Response Program. These opportunities will be allocated through a competitive process. The drought resiliency project funding opportunity is for projects that will increase the reliability of water supply; improve water management; implement systems to facilitate the voluntary sale, transfer, or exchange of water; and provide benefits for fish, wildlife, and the environment to mitigate impacts caused by drought. States, tribes, irrigation districts, water districts, and other organizations with water or power delivery authority are invited to leverage their money and resources by cost sharing with Reclamation. It is available at www.grants.gov by searching for funding opportunity number R16-FOA-DO-006. The drought contingency planning funding opportunity is for applicants to request funding to develop a new drought plan or to update an existing drought plan. Applicants may also request technical assistance from Reclamation for the development of elements of the Drought Contingency Plan. States, Indian tribes, irrigation districts, water districts, and other organizations with water or power delivery authority are eligible for this funding opportunity. It is available at www.grants.gov by searching for funding opportunity number R16-FOA-DO-005. Approximately $6 million will be available for both funding opportunities. Applicants must also provide a 50 percent non-Federal cost-share. Applications are due on April 11, 2016, by 4 p.m. MDT as indicated in the funding opportunities. For more than 100 years, Reclamation and its partners have worked to develop a sustainable water and power future for the West. This program is part of the Department of the Interior's WaterSMART Program, which focuses on improving water conservation and sustainability, while helping water resource managers make sound decisions about water use. To find out more information about Reclamation's WaterSMART program, visit www.usbr.gov/watersmart, or visit the Drought Response Program at www.usbr.gov/drought.
