The Gila Watershed Partnership
The organization was founded in 1992 to improve the Upper Gila Watershed of Arizona. We are a 501(c)3 not-for-profit Arizona Corporation that is made up of community members and representatives from businesses, organizations, and local, state and federal agencies who who live and work in Graham and Greenlee counties.
Our parters come from many different backgrounds and are spread across a wide geographical region, but are united by the determination to protect and improve the quality and quantity of our water, and improve the condition of the Upper Gila Watershed of Arizona.
Planning for our Watershed is Important
Our watershed issues affect everything we do. Both the quality and quantity of our water plays an important part in our lives. While we live in a rich rural environment, we have issues that include impaired rivers, soil erosion, invasive weeds, and flooding.
