How River and Arroyo Adoption Works
The Santa Fe Watershed Association manages two programs that basically work like a national adopt a highway program. Aside from no government funding, and trash pick up, the biggest difference between our programs and the national adopt a highway program is truly an opportunity to improve Santa Fe's Watershed. Your watershed.
Our Adopt the River program of 15 years and Adopt an Arroyo program uses the power of uber volunteers who adopt a part of the Santa Fe River or local arroyo. Adoption is positive environmental impact. We also post much snappier signs near each adopted area to display volunteer and sponsor logos or names.
There are a couple of ways to adopt a piece of the Santa Fe River or a bit of an arroyo. A financial commitment as a sponsor or physical commitment as a steward is all it takes. It's pretty easy and you'll be part of an extended, brilliant, community who cares and protects Santa Fe's best asset for cleaner water. Protect the watershed and you protect both the community and the environment.
