  This will also add you to our action team, keeping you in the loop about upcoming action items, such as submitting a public comment when the Resource Management Plan is released. 

1. Call Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke (202-208-3100) and tell him you want to see Otero Mesa protected, now and for the future.

2. Send an email to your Congressional representatives. If you live in southern New Mexico, you can use this form. If you live elsewhere, find your Congressional representatives here.

3. Write a letter to the editor voicing your support for protecting Otero Mesa. Writing a letter to the editor of your local newspaper is an excellent way to raise awareness about Otero Mesa and the threat posed by oil, gas, and mining development. It shows public officials that you support Otero Mesa protection and expect that they will, too. See talking points here.

Living Rivers

1. Contact your Congressional representatives. Tell them that the current state of the Rio Grande in southern New Mexico and west Texas is unacceptable, and urge them to establish a federal program to purchase land and water for river restoration. If you live in southern New Mexico, you can use this form.If you live elsewhere, find your Congressional representatives here.

2. Write a letter to the editor voicing your support for restoring the Rio Grande. Writing a letter to the editor of your local newspaper is an excellent way to raise awareness about the condition of the Rio Grande, and it shows public officials that people care about the river and want something done.

3. If you live in Las Cruces or El Paso, tell your city councilor you want to see a "Living River" program established that will allow water customers to make a voluntary donation to a fund that will be used to purchase water rights so that water can remain in the river year-round (instream flows).

4. Volunteer to help with river restoration efforts, such as planting trees, installing bat houses, removing non-native, invasive plants and river clean-ups.

5. If you are an irrigation district customer (Elephant Butte Irrigation District or El Paso County Water Improvement District #1) and pay an annual assessment for irrigation water, consider donating your water on an annual basis or longer, to support river restoration projects. Also, consider voting in board elections for “pro-river” candidates. Contact kevin@wildmesquite.org for more information.
