Projects and Programs in Focus

  • Columbine Hondo Wilderness Protection Project - Your Support is Needed!

    Help protect the magnificent Columbine Hondo Wilderness for future generations, our largest public wilderness in Taos County!  In April 2012, Senator Jeff Bingaman and Senator Tom Udall introduced  Bill S.2468 to Congress to permanently protect this precious headwater wilderness for present and future generations, but that bill did not pass in Congress.  In 2013, Senator Udall and Heinrich  introduced Bill S. 776 and Congressman Lujan introduced Bill HR 1683 to designate the Columbine Hondo for permanent protection as a formal Wilderness.  In 2014 Rivers & Birds continued to build support within the Columbine Hondo Wilderness Coalition. Remember your citizen support is pivotal in ensuring the success of this bill.
