Outcomes Report for Fiscal Year 2019-2020

During the period from July 1, 2019, through June 30, 2020, the Mid Rio Grande Stormwater Quality Team (MRGSQT) continued its educational outreach activities. When pandemic quarantine restrictions took effect in March 2020, many in-person events were canceled and some ongoing outreach activities were reconfigured to accommodate this new reality. However, the majority of the year was business as usual. This report will highlight all activities, including the late-year programmatic pivots, including:

  • Partnering with the Bosque Ecosystem Monitoring Program (BEMP), Arroyo Classroom and RiverXChange
  • Continuing to maintain and update the keeptheriogrand.com website, as well as post relevant information to the Keep the Rio Grand Facebook page
  • Participating in high-profile community events, including the Los Ranchos Lavender Festival, the NM State Fair Parade, the Corrales Harvest Festival, the Rio Rancho Children’s Water Festival and New Mexico’s Animal Humane Society’s Doggie Dash and Dawdle
  • Repairing and strengthening hardware for the team’s interactive kiosk and moving it to Albuquerque’s South Valley Library
  • Participating in a variety of community events throughout the year
