Dixon, New Mexico; July 2019

The module, in collaboration with the New Mexico State Land Office (NMSLO), Picuris Pueblo, Angel Fire Fire Department, Pueblo of Santa Clara, and Southwest Office Guild staff worked to complete a 500-acre burn on NMSLO lands near Dixon, NM. This week-long effort was completed through the help of the All Hands All Lands (AHAL) program, which is a collaborative effort between The Nature Conservancy of New Mexico, the Rio Grande Water Fund, the Forest Stewards Guild, and many others to accelerate the return of fire to the frequent fire ecosystems in the Water Fund landscape.

Numerous partners coming together across agency boundaries in order to accomplish large-scale prescribed burns is a huge part of the future of improved fire management.
