Join the Cienega Watershed Partnership!

The Cienega Watershed is a unique landscape in Southeastern Arizona in which the Cienega Creek, visible as a green riparian ribbon, cuts through a sea of semi-desert grasslands hosting an array of critical habitats and historical resources. Within this scenic and rich landscape, however, are threats from climate change, vegetation changes, development pressures, and multiple owners. Fortunately, the Cienega Watershed Partnership and many partners in the watershed are committed to sustaining the ecological systems, heritage values, wildlife corridors, and open spaces for future generations. Join us in these efforts!
