Thank Senators Tom Udall and Martin Heinrich

Senators Tom Udall and Martin Heinrich have advanced legislation this week during a hearing in the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee. The legislation would designate sections of the Gila and San Francisco Rivers and their tributaries as Wild and Scenic. The M.H. Dutch Salmon Greater Gila Wild and Scenic River Act permanently protects 446 miles of these rivers in their free-flowing condition.

The Senators continue to show outstanding leadership in preserving New Mexico’s most critical natural infrastructure and ensuring that future generations will benefit from our incredible lands and waters.

Take a moment now to thank the Senators for taking steps to preserve these special rivers for future generations.
