Our River, Our Water, Our Future

The mission of the Santa Fe Watershed Association is to protect and restore the health and vibrancy of the Santa Fe River and its watershed for the benefit of people and the environment. We achieve this through education, restoration, stewardship, and advocacy. From the River’s headwaters to the Rio Grande, we honor the connection of people and the watershed.

Votes are in! We’ve been voted “Best Nonprofit for the Environment” for the third year in a row! Join us on Friday, July 27th from 5pm-9pm in the Railyard to celebrate at the Best of Santa Fe Party in the Railyard. Check out other winners in the Local Living category here.
