The Gila Watershed Partnership of Arizona

The  Gila Watershed Partnership was founded in 1992 to improve the Upper Gila Watershed of Arizona. We are a 501(c)3 not-for-profit Arizona Corporation that is made up of community members and representatives from businesses, organizations, and local, state and federal agencies who who live and work in Graham and Greenlee counties.

Our partners come from many different backgrounds and are spread across a wide geographical region, but are united by the determination to protect and improve the quality and quantity of our water, and improve the condition of the Upper Gila Watershed of Arizona.

Planning for our Watershed is Important
Our watershed issues affect everything we do. Both the quality and quantity of our water  plays an important part in our lives. While we live in a rich rural environment, we have issues that include impaired rivers, soil erosion, invasive weeds, and flooding.


Our Goals

  • To conserve natural resources
  • To enhance the environment for all users
  • To maintain or improve the local economy
  • To increase recreational opportunities
  • To increase water quantity
  • To improve water quality
  • To plan and act in order to avoid and minimize damage from large storms, floods, and other natural disasters
