Cienega Ranch 3

October 2022 (approx.)

Detailed Description

At the Cienega Ranch, near Willcox, Arizona, in the foothills of the Dos Cabeza Mountains, a rancher is working to restore and conserve high- quality native grasslands and critical wildlife habitat, while keeping the land as a working cattle ranch.  Our objectives were to estimate the hydrological effect of water harvesting on grassland restoration and quantify how grassland conservation efforts impact recharge and water availability at the ranch.
