Our Work

We Make Things Happen 

GWP is a boots-on-the-ground, field-based conservation organization. We confront issues in the Upper Gila Watershed that include polluted rivers, soil erosion, invasive weeds, loss of habitat, drought, fire, and flooding. We work with diverse partners to implement projects that direct resources to the root of these issues, while employing and purchasing locally to benefit the economy and community.
