Stewart Meadows Wetlands Master Plan Meetings

Related: Environment and Natural Resources

The Stewart Meadows wetlands are located along the San Antonio River in north-central New Mexico. The wetlands are important for wildlife, especially migratory waterfowl. In the late 1980s, the US Forest Service initiated efforts to restore the wetlands that once existed. In 2004 and 2005, the Forest Service and the New Mexico Environment Department collaborated with stakeholders such as the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish, the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, the National Wildlife Federation, and local ranchers to implement further improvements to restore the Stewart Meadows wetlands and improve habitat for waterfowl and other wildlife.


As part of this process, the New Mexico Environment Department engaged Meridian Institute to facilitate planning meetings and public meetings at which stakeholders reviewed and provided input on the Stewart Meadows Wetlands Master Plan and restoration effort. Meridian facilitated two such public meetings in 2004 and 2005.
