GRIP and the UNM INSPIRES program, collaborating with Gila Tech LLC and Aldo Leopold Charter School, have been installing PurpleAir sensors to monitor particulate air quality in Grant County. The Grant County AirWISE project will provide real-time air quality measurements to our community. So far, we have installed samplers at five sites and we'll deploy five more over the coming weeks. Stay tuned for more updates! #grip #airWISE #grantcounty #aldoleopoldcharterschool #airquality #purpleair #newmexico

One of our many projects, the San Vicente Creek River Stewardship project focuses on the restoration of San Vicente Creek. In Phase 2, we have removed more than 30 acres of invasive trees from the riparian corridor that pose a fire risk and crowd out native vegetation. We look forward to restoring the cottonwoods and willows and other natives along San Vicente, Pinos Altos and Silva creeks. Your support helps us to continue this important work to restore our watershed and build climate resilience in our ecological systems. You can become a part of our efforts by supporting our work during Give Grandly 2024 on May 4th. #grip #donate #givegrandly #silvercity #supportthework #newmexico #riverstewarship #sanvicentecreek


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.
