Description: The Bernalillo Watershed Protection Project was begun in 1953 following catastrophic erosion and flooding of small communities below. Although erosion control features and protection from grazing successfully increased grass cover and stabilized watershed soils, the expansion of juniper woodland (Juniperus monosperma) into the grassland watershed prompted concern that gains in watershed stability could be reversed. In 1995, fire was reintroduced into the grassland as a means of maintaining perennial grass cover and preventing further expansion of the juniper woodland community.

Keywords: prescribed fire, Juniperus, Opuntia, juniper woodland, Juniperus monosperma, Bernalillo Watershed Protection Project
