The fate of Taos Valley's water is at a crossroads. It's time for citizens to speak up about the Abeyta Settlement plan that may alter the future of our water, our traditions, and our communities.

I just signed a petition to Parties to the Abeyta Settlement: To the Abeyta Settlement Parties and the Government Water Leaders of Taos Valley, I fully support your decision to approve approximately 12,000-acre feet of water annually for Taos Pueblo. However, I propose elimination of the deep wells…

As many of us know, the situation in Standing Rock is coming to a critical juncture. With winter settling in, increasingly violent displays of force by law enforcement against the peaceful demonstrators or 'Water Protectors', and the threat of a forced closure of the camps on December 5 by the US Army Corps of Engineers, it is important to speak up now to protect sacred water and our Earth in the face of environmental devastation.

President Obama has the ability to permanentl...y halt the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline, and we must urge him to use his position of power for the benefit of all.

Rivers & Birds just completed another wonderful round of our Watershed Learning Program! Over the past several weeks, 5th grade students from Arroyos del Norte Elementary School learned about important aspects of watershed health and conservation, global water availability, prehistoric water conservation methods, "Leave No Trace" ethics, and more through engaging, experiential field trips and lessons.

We are confident that these incredibly capable and caring students will take these lessons with them as they grow to become the next generation of environmental advocates and caretakers.

As always, we are full of gratitude to our community volunteers and funding partners for making this exciting work possible!

As part of a National Day of Action, we will join those gathering at the State Capitol Building in Santa Fe tomorrow to peacefully and prayerfully stand in solidarity with all those opposing the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline in North Dakota. If at all possible, we urge you to join us there or to find a similar event near you!

It is more important now than ever that we stand up in defense of our Earth and in support of one other. No matter our beliefs, who we are, or where we come from, water is life for us all.
