Rangeland & Wildlife Division

The Range and Wildlife Division (RWD) was established in 2001 and is tasked with identifying, developing, and implementing projects and management plans that benefit approximately 75,000 acres of the Pueblo's upland habitats and the people, wildlife, and livestock that depend on them. The RWD includes eight full time employees who are responsible for implementing projects such as the Upland Vegetation Assessment and Strategic Management Plan Development Project, the Rio Jemez Corridor Conservation Project, the Oneseed Juniper Density Reduction Project, the Santa Ana Mesa Environmental Quality Incentives Project, the Wild Turkey Reintroduction Project, and Surveying and Monitoring Southwestern Willow Flycatchers and Yellow-billed Cuckoos. Collaborators and partners in implementing these projects include the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA), the United States Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA), the United States Forest Service (USFS), the University of New Mexico Museum of Southwestern Biology (MSB), the National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF), and the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish (NMGF).
