Amigos Bravos

Because Water Matters — Since 1988

We have a vision of New Mexico’s rivers and streams running so clear and clean that you can bend a knee to the water, cup your hands, and drink without fear.


Take Action Now!

Please take the time to engage in two active actions:


1.    Midnight Meadows - Your voice is needed to support headwater wetland restoration in the Upper Red River Watershed! Please take the time to send a letter to the Natural Resources Damages Trustees in support of Amigos Bravos’ Midnight Meadows Wetland Jewel Restoration Project. Click on the first link below to send a pre written comment in support of the project. Or you can draft your own letter and submit it via e-mail to: with “Questa Mine Site RP/EA” in the subject line. If submitting requests electronically, please include name and mailing address. The comment deadline is December 18th, 2017.

2.    Carson Wild and Scenic - Write to the Carson National Forest and let them know that you oppose their proposal to remove Wild and Scenic River protections from 61 rivers on the Carson. Iconic rivers such as the Columbine, Gavilan, Yerba, Ponil and McCrystal rives are on the chopping block. Add your own language to the template outlining why these rivers are special to you! Also let them know that you support protections for Wetland Jewels and the Valle Vidal. Please click on the third link below to send an email to the Carson National Forest. 


  • Stay informed, sign up for e-mail action alerts on our home page, become a fan of our Facebook page, call us at 575-758-3874
  • Contact the Congressional Delegation (Udall, Heinrich, Lujan, Lujan-Grisham, and Pearce) and let them know how important clean water is to you, and ask them to provide more funding for cleanup and restoration efforts at Los Alamos National Laboratory and for community water quality monitoring efforts
  • Sign up to volunteer at Amigos Bravos – We organize summer river clean up and river restoration efforts, and water quality monitoring opportunities (we provide training), and we occasionally need help with research and in-house mailings.
  • Help further our mission by becoming a steward of your own watershed – let us know about issues important to you, and if you have questions about how to protect and restore your river.

If you are not a member, please become one now — by doing so you will be adding your voice to a growing number of families protecting New Mexico's rivers and the communities that depend on them.

Thank you for taking action!
