Thank you to Aldo Leopold Charter School YCC Rainwater Harvesting Crew and GRIP's air quality interns for spending the day with us yesterday planting willows in San Vicente Creek as part of our River Stewardship project. The students planted 213 willows that will protect the stream bank and sewer line from being eroded by the creek. Great job everyone!

GRIP's communications associate Corina Castillo joined U.S. Rep. Gabe Vasquez on a hike to the Gila Middle Box. We were able to enjoy the area as we discussed long-term protection of the Gila River by designating it as a Wild & Scenic river. Thank you to our Congressman for sponsoring the bill and his dedication to the Gila! Check out the article here, #grip #gilariver #silvercity #wild&scenic #hiking #riverprotection


GRIP works in communities, in the courts, and in the state legislature

to protect community health, our environment, and natural resources.

Together, we can secure a healthy future for everyone!


GRIP serves as a watchful guardian of our environment in southwest New Mexico. We keep an eye on activities with the potential to harm community health and our environment, such as polluting mining operations, unsustainable water use, and ecologically harmful projects. In response, we bring technical, policy and legal expertise to protect our land, air, water, public lands and wildlife. By facilitating informed public participation, we engage the public in natural resource use decisions and stewardship of our natural systems.


We work to protect community health and our natural resources by
ensuring responsible operation and reclamation of the region’s mines, by fostering resiliency and water security in the face of the climate crisis, and by saving our special natural areas and public lands for future generations.



We defend human and ecological health by using technical, policy and legal expertise to uphold safeguards of our water, air, land, and natural systems.



We engage our community to take action to protect our environment, public health, and unique wild places through educational events and stewardship programs




There are lots of ways to get involved with GRIP and help us safeguard community health by protecting our environment and natural resources. At the same time, you’ll learn skills, meet new friends, and feel good about contributing to our community!

  • Volunteer on specific projects such as water quality monitoring, trash cleanup, environmental education; review mining permit applications or project environmental impact assessments; and administrative tasks.
  • Volunteer for events, such as Earth Day, World Water Day, and the Gila River Festival.
  • Contribute some of your creativity to help us achieve our mission, such as photographs, articles, or art work.
