The goal of the Southwest Rivers Headwaters program is to restore, protect and enhance aquatic and riparian species of conservation concern and their habitats in the headwaters of the Rio Grande and Gila River watersheds. The Gila River headwaters is a new priority geography for this area and includes the main stem of the Gila River and headwater tributaries in New Mexico and Arizona upstream of San Carlos Lake, as well as the White and Black Rivers. Priority projects will address the leading factors in aquatic and riparian species decline such as habitat alteration, environmental change and invasive species.
