What are the ecological zones of the Santa Fe River Watershed?🤔

Vegetation types in the watershed are controlled by elevation, geology, and associated precipitation and temperature. Alpine tundra is found at the highest elevations followed in descending order by spruce-fir forest, mixed conifer forest, and then around 7,500 feet a transition to mostly ponderosa pine. Below approximately 6,500 feet the vegetation transitions to a mix of piñon pine-juniper woodlands and semi-arid rangelands covering approximately 80% of the watershed. Additionally, the Watershed has a diversity of wetland ecosystems, such as upload slope wetlands, riparian wetlands, and the largest area of cienega (spring-fed) wetlands in the state of New Mexico! All of the diversity in the Santa Fe River Watershed comes together to make it a beautiful and unique place.🌲🤓💦
