Short Description of Activity
Three conservation groups mentioned above discussed issues with protecting riparian habitat and increasing recommended wilderness for the Carson, the Santa Fe and the Cibola National Forests. They also supplied talking points that we shared with our Broadband.
We sent out an email to the RGVBB with talking points, etc. and several members did submit comments, along with some of the members who attended the meeting. The presenters did a good job of talking about the Santa Fe and the Carson NFs, but needed some help talking about the Cibola, which our broadband group was able to supply.
