About the Forest and Watershed Health Information Clearinghouse

The Forest and Watershed Health Information Clearinghouse provides centralized access to ecological, socio-cultural and economic information related to restoration and maintenance of New Mexico forests and watersheds. The clearinghouse functions as a library as well as a shared workspace. Content can be uploaded, organized topically and searched by users of the clearinghouse. Shared workspace will also enhance collaboration, training, and knowledge among those involved in forest and watershed restoration. The Clearinghouse is a joint project of New Mexico State Forestry and the New Mexico Forest and Watershed Restoration Institute, pursuant to the state’s Forest and Watershed Health Plan. 

riverFinal Plan for Non-Native Invasive Species/Watershed Management

Riparian lands in New Mexico have been seriously impacted by the infestation of non-native phreatophytes. The two of most concern are tamarisk (a.k.a. saltcedar) and to a lesser extent Russian olive. The New Mexico Department of Agriculture provides the leadership, administrative oversight, and assistance for State funded non-native phreatophyte programs.
