MISSION

MONITORING

Rio Bravo Restoration has been involved in projects ranging from vegetation mapping, long-term botanical and geomorphic monitoring, photo point establishment, and invertebrate and fish surveys. We have also worked with stakeholders to design and adapt innovative monitoring protocols.

IMPLEMENTATION

Once the planning is finished, we can get it done. Specializing in work in remote locations and river based restoration, our crew has extensive experience with riparian revegetation, exotic plant management, and instrument installation and maintenance.  If you have a job that needs to get done we can put together the team to make it happen.

RIVER AND BACKCOUNTRY SCIENTIFIC SUPPORT

Rio Bravo Restoration works with land managers and researchers to provide logistical support for river based and backcountry work. Often, our collaborators have all the technical skills needed to do the work but need assistance operating in these environments. We can help with equipment, planning, logistics and staff needed to complete your project

MAPPING

Rio Bravo Restoration has worked with multiple partners to collect spatial data for vegetation and topo maps. Our crew has the experience and knowledge to identify and map vegetation for multi-spectral mapping or to ground proof vegetation maps. We can also collect data to build DEM's.

CAPACITY BUILDING

We love sharing our knowledge and Rio Bravo Restoration has been involved in multiple projects to help build capacity and skills for restoration work, conservation, and ecotourism. Projects include all women's river trips to help develop conservation leadership in rural border communities, guide training for Mexican border communities interested in ecotourism, and river skills training for crews working with La Comisión Nacional de Áreas Naturales Protegidas (CONANP) on river based restoration projects.

BI-NATIONAL COOPERATION

Our home river is the Trans Pecos reach of the Rio Grande and we strongly believe that you can't manage just one side of a river.  Rio Bravo has been a leader in helping coordinate with our partners in Mexico and have worked closely with La Comisión Nacional de Áreas Naturales Protegidas (CONANP) and other stakeholders to assist with training, joint monitoring, planning and implementation. And we've made a lot of friends along the way.
