Water Sentinels — Rios de Taos has been awarded a grant to encourage student participation in water-monitoring activities and the general environmental activities of Sierra Club.

We will continue to work with Taos High School students — the Tiger Salamanders — and will be contacting other high schools to initiate more student environmental programs.

Our long-term goal is to have more student environmental organizations and more young Sierra Club members. If you know of any New Mexico student groups who might be interested in participating, please contact Eric Patterson, Water Sentinels coordinator, at eepatt@gmail.com or 575-776-2833.
