Join us to learn about the restoration and re-wilding efforts of this amazing conservation nonprofit, Cuenca los Ojos. Hear Executive Director, Jeremiah Leibowitz share about Cuenca los Ojos’s inspiring work in restoring watersheds, replenishing soils and bringing back native biodiversity.
Cuenca Los Ojos (CLO), the Watershed of the Springs, is a 121,000-acre protected area in the Sky Islands along the Arizona-Sonora, Mexico border. CLO began in the 1980s when founder Valer Clark dared to imagine what the desert landscape, which had been degraded by years of overgrazing, could look like. Now, over 30 years later and through the hard work of countless people, CLO has protected thousands of acres and flourished with over 435 species of wildlife observed including jaguars and black bears. They have restored 2000 acres of riparian vegetation, reseeded over 8,000 acres of grassland, constructed over 1,000 berms and 80 gabion walls to assist in the capture of water, and more.
