SJCA Monthly Scoop

What’s new at the Alliance?

Join us to get the inside scoop on what San Juan Citizens Alliance has been up to! Every month, one SJCA program staff will give an update on their work and answer any questions you have. We’ll be covering everything from recreation on the Animas to wolf reintroduction to energy transition in New Mexico. Come learn what the Alliance is working on, connect with our staff, and meet fellow community members!
