File Troff document 2015 Annual Report: Estancia Basin Watershed Health, Restoration and Monitoring Project
This 2015 Annual Report provides information on the results of forest thinning during the calendar year 2015. Initial 2008, 2009, and 2010 baseline pre-treatment monitoring data from permanent monitoring study sites provided information on rainfall, ambient and soil temperatures, soil moisture, soil surface profiles to assess erosion over time, soil surface stability, soil chemistry, bird and small mammal composition and relative abundance, and vegetation composition, structure, and cover. Monitoring data from 2011 to 2015 provides post treatment information on the above parameters along with data on medium-sized to large wildlife and livestock for the first 5 years following thinning treatments.

File Restoring composition and structure in Southwestern frequent-fire forests: A science-based framework for improving ecosystem resiliency
Ponderosa pine and dry mixed-conifer forests in the Southwest United States are experiencing, or have become increasingly susceptible to, large-scale severe wildfire, insect, and disease episodes resulting in altered plant and animal demographics, reduced productivity and biodiversity, and impaired ecosystem processes and functions. We present a management framework based on a synthesis of science on forest ecology and management, reference conditions, and lessons learned during implementations of our restoration framework. Our framework informs management strategies that can improve the resiliency of frequent-fire forests and facilitate the resumption of characteristic ecosystem processes and functions by restoring the composition, structure, and spatial patterns of vegetation. We believe restoration of key compositional and structural elements on a per-site basis will restore resiliency of frequent-fire forests in the Southwest, and thereby position them to better resist, and adapt to, future disturbances and climates.

The Rio Grande Water Fund is announcing the 2018 RGWF Request for Proposals (RFP). The Rio Grande Water Fund is seeking proposal for three, potentially overlapping, categories: 1. Forest Restoration Treatments 2. Stream, Wetland, and Aquatic Restoration Projects 3. Capacity Building (New for 2018) The RFP is open to both public and private lands. There is no match required, but leveraged or matched funding is encouraged. With this RFP, we aim to build on the vast experience the RGWF partners have in planning and implementing restoration treatments in the focal areas of the RGWF, and we encourage all to apply. We also hope to attract new partners, including groups looking to develop new collaboratives, stand up fire and fuels crews, or build innovative tools to tackle tough problems. Deadline for submission is January 22, 2018. Applicants should use the online form available at to submit their proposal. If you have any questions, please email or call Collin Haffey at 505-946-2637.
