Description: The Rio Grande was recently classified as one of the most endangered or imperiled rivers in North America (American Rivers 1993). Originating in southwestern Colorado, it passes through New Mexico and forms the international boundary between the United States (Texas) and Mexico. In its 2,000+ kilometer course to the Gulf of Mexico it passes through several major impoundments, is used in numerous irrigation diversion dams, and sustains massive groundwater pumping of its aquifer, especially in major metropolitan areas.

Keywords: Rio Grande, sustainability, riparian, environmental history, climate change, pinyon-juniper, desert grasslands, ecosystem restoration
