Partners in Adaptive Management of the San Pedro Riparian National Conservation Area

The SPRNCA Memorandum of Understanding for Cooperative Monitoring and Management was designed to help the Partners in Adaptive Management — the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, Fort Huachuca, the City of Sierra Vista, and the County of Cochise — achieve shared goals to ensure the following:

  • A healthy San Pedro River and ecologically viable SPRNCA
  • Long-term water supplies to meet the needs of area residents
  • Opportunities for continued economic growth and development
  • A safe and adequate water supply for Fort Huachuca and compliance with obligations under the Endangered Species Act.

The mission of the Cochise Conservation & Recharge Network (CCRN) is to implement a regional network of land and water management projects that result in a healthy watershed, flowing San Pedro River, conservation of water resources, and a vibrant local economy.
