Stewarding the natural and cultural resources of the Cienega Watershed of Southeastern Arizona.


Projects are at the heart of the Cienega Watershed Partnership mission to facilitate cooperative actions that steward the natural and cultural resources of the Cienega Watershed while enabling sustainable human use.

Our projects are divided into four general categories:


We sponsor three educational projects for teachers, families, and youth: Educational Opportunities at Las Cienegas National Conservation Area, Curriculum: Shared History of the Watershed, and YES! Youth Engaged Stewardship.

Science is a critical component of our work. Sound research is the basis for sound stewardship. Our projects include State of the Watershed, Science on the Sonoita Plain Annual Symposium, and Adaptive Management and Climate Change.
