SEED is currently working closely with Rio Grande Return, a New Mexico non-profit corporation, in order to support its important conservation and habitat restoration efforts along the Rio Grande. 

Rio Grande Return's mission is to provide support and funding to organizations in the Rio Grande watershed for the restoration and protection of the Rio Grande. Restoration and protection are defined as activities that promote sustainable and healthy relationships between the Rio Grande and its human communities by:

1.  Improving water quality;

2. Establishing a diversity of riparian and aquatic habitats to sustain the native plants and animals;

3. Rehabilitating the physical structure, and hydrologic, hydraulic and geomorphic processes that shape a stream corridor and support a functioning river ecosystem; and

4. Enhancing public access to and appreciation of the Rio Grande and its ecosystem.
