The Cienega Watershed Partnership facilitates cooperative actions that steward the natural and cultural resources of the Cienega Watershed while enabling sustainable human use.
Cienega means ‘wetlands’. In a desert landscape where most riparian areas are threatened, we work to preserve the Cienega Creek watershed into perpetuity.
Our mission is to keep this cool desert respite – a home for significant natural and cultural resources – as a legacy for our children and their children. CWP works with all stakeholders who can impact the sustainability of the ecosytems.
Can we count on YOU? Become a partner, join as a member or offer your skills and resources.
What does the work of the
