The Gila River in New Mexico holds a hidden gem of a wilderness paddle and is the last wild river in New Mexico. A project to dam and drain the headwaters of the Gila was recently approved by the Interstate Stream Commission and now the Governor Susana Martinez has only two weeks left to make a decision on this proposed Gila River Diversion. You can help by contacting the Governor TODAY, and signing the petition.
You can help save the Gila!
Contact Governor Susana Martinez and tell her that building the Gila River Diversion is a bad idea, and that the Gila River needs to be protected, for people, wildlife, recreation, and future generations.
