The Cienega Watershed Partnership facilitates cooperative actions that steward the natural and cultural resources of the Cienega Watershed while enabling sustainable human use.
CWP works with all stakeholders, including landowners, recreational users, and government agencies who can impact the sustainability of the ecosystems including the human communities.
CCCC & SVPP
At the core of the CWP are two community forums focused on the stewardship projects in different regions of the landscape. Both groups face challenges and opportunities that are often inter-related and require collaborative efforts.
The Cienega Corridor Conservation Council (CCCC) is a forum for stakeholders in the northern or lower Cienega Watershed.

The Sonoita Valley Planning Partnership (SVPP) is a forum for stakeholders in the southern or upper Cienega Watershed.

On January 16, 2014, Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewel presented the Partners in Conservation Award to CWP in Washington, D. C.
The CWP and 29 partners were honored for conservation programs, especially in native aquatic habitats, oral history and youth engaged stewardship.
