Parts of Gila River would get Wild & Scenic designation under new bill

The most environmentally sensitive portions of New Mexico’s Gila River watershed would be protected under a bill the state’s two U.S. senators introduced Tuesday.


Parts of the Gila River, its wilderness area and the San Francisco River tributary would be placed under the Wild and Scenic Rivers designation to preserve their natural beauty, plus create recreational opportunities and diverse wildlife for future generations, Sens. Tom Udall and Martin Heinrich said in a statement.
