*Summary* Steeped in rich history, the Santa Fe River was once the lifeblood of people and wildlife alike.

Restoring flows to the Santa Fe River would provide not only a healthy ecosystem, but also a place for residents to rejuvenate, visitors to enjoy and children to play. Local and state officials have set the stage for the river's revival -- now it's up to the city of Santa Fe to put the "river" in river restoration. Learn more.
