The Conservancy’s hydrologist, Jeanmarie Haney, recently was appointed to Yavapai County’s Water Technical Advisory Committee (TAC). The committee supports the work of the County’s Water Advisory Committee, which is developing regional water management and conservation strategies to ensure sustained use of our water and the protection of the region’s rivers.

The six TAC members have expertise in water resources and water management and are providing technical guidance on the often complex hydrologic, geologic, and engineering issues facing the Water Advisory Committee in its decision-making process.

A resident of Cottonwood, Jeanmarie has extensive experience with hydrologic issues on rivers throughout Arizona as well as professional expertise in hydrogeology, groundwater modeling, and the interplay between hydrology and the health of our riparian and aquatic systems.

Draft ecosystem management plan for Aravaipa Canyon released

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has released a draft plan for public comment on management of the 70,000 Aravaipa Canyon area in southeastern Arizona. Long known as one of the region’s premier desert river and canyon system, the area is jointly managed by the BLM and the Nature Conservancy.

Development of the plan was a collaborative effort among BLM, Arizona Game & Fish Department, and the Conservancy. The plan’s goals focus on restoration and maintenance of the Canyon’s ecosystems and identifying limits to use and development to ensure long-term health of the area. Conservancy staff members, Dale Turner and Mark Haberstich, worked on the plan with BLM and Arizona Game and Fish Department.

The draft Aravaipa Canyon Ecosystem Management Plan can be viewed at BLM's website.
