    Description

    Seiiorito Canyon, a non-functional, degraded tributary stream of the Rio Puerto in New Mexico, has begun to respond to management strategies by the Bureau of Land Management. Restoration of the riparian ecosystem has been accomplished principally through livestock grazing management and planting and reestablishment of the native cottonwood/willow communities. The use of riparian pastures constructed along the stream was necessary to "jump-start" the system and allow total grazing deferment from 3 to 5 years.
