This booklet is for you if you have any kind of streamside or wetland area that you want to take care of and understand better. It is a monitoring and maintenance guide for landowners, volunteers, and anyone else who is responsible for small southwestern riparian (or streamside) wetlands, woodlands, restoration sites or protected areas.

This booklet is a collaborative effort of the SWQB Wetlands Program and Dave Morgan of La Calandria Associates, Inc. Graphic Design Layout is by Stephen Bohannon of Xylem Creative.

Funding was provided by US EPA Region 6 through a Wetlands Program Development Grant awarded to the SWQB Wetlands Program. Many thanks to the bosque landowners on the Upper Rio Grande between Española and Velarde for the care and good stewardship of their beautiful bosque environment. The Ohkay Owingeh Office of Environmental Affairs has graciously offered the use of photos of the Rio Grande bosque within the pueblo.
