Urban and Community Forestry
The New Mexico Urban and Community Forestry Program serves as an avenue to provide education and support to communities across the state for managing their urban forests.
Socioeconomic Indicators for Forest Restoration Projects
A model for assessing the socioeconomic outcomes of forest restoration projects was developed. Using a form of purposive sampling, eleven experts with backgrounds in the social, economic, and business aspects of forest restoration were identifi ed and agreed to participate in the process. Four iterations of a Delphi process resulted in a practical, robust model capable of evaluating the social and economic eff ects and outcomes of a wide range of forest restoration projects. Among the most highly rated indicators in the model were those related to job creation, community stability, economic impacts, and collaborative participation in restoration processes. Th e relative importance of the indicators was estimated, and specifi c metrics were developed for each indicator in the model. Upon completion of the Delphi process, the model was discussed with forest restoration monitoring practitioners and stakeholders, who off ered their perspectives from practitioners’ points of view. Results may have implications for any forest restoration eff orts with an interest in assessing a project’s social and economic outcomes.

The Economic Benefits of Protecting Healthy Watersheds
Healthy intact watersheds provide many ecosystem services that are necessary for our social and economic well-being. These services include water filtration and storage, air filtration, carbon storage, nutrient cycling, soil formation, recreation, food and timber. Many of these services have not been monetized and therefore the economic contributions of healthy intact ecosystems are often under-valued when making land use decisions. Ecosystem services provided by healthy watersheds are difficult to replace and most often very expensive to engineer (see chart). An engineered ecosystem service replacement may only provide a fraction of the services provided by highly functioning natural systems.

Urban Waters Small Grants Oppurtunity
The goal of the Urban Waters Small Grants program is to fund research, investigations, experiments, training, surveys, studies, and demonstrations that will advance the restoration of urban waters by improving water quality through activities that also support community revitalization and other local priorities. EPA expects to award approximately up to $1.6 million to support such projects, in grants of $40,000 to $60,000 each. The funding is part of EPA’s Urban Waters program, which supports communities in their efforts to access, improve, and benefit from their urban waters and the surrounding land.
