Cranes on the Rio Grande
For thousands of years Sandhill cranes have migrated up and down the Rio Grande. Like so many other species, these Sandhill Cranes depend on the Rio Grande for their survival.

Jose Lucero
Santa Clara Pueblo

Jose Lucero is an elder living at Santa Clara Pueblo. This organic blue corn is grown from traditional seeds and watered from a spring next to his house. When Jose isn't working in his fields or teaching at the elementary school, he is probably somewhere lecturing on the sacred nature of water. Jose also has plans to build a water museum.
