Playa Lake Restoration

Playa Restoration, Habitat Conservation, New Mexico Department of Game and Fish

New! Did you know that playa lakes are critical features not only for wildlife, but also for recharging the aquifer? These important features provide water and food sources for waterfowl, the grassland buffers around the playa provide habitat for songbirds, and the clay bottom of the playa allows water to filter down to the aquifer for future use as drinking water or for agriculture. The Department has launched an initiative to improve wildlife habitat by paying for playa lake restoration. If you have playa lakes on your property in eastern New Mexico and are interested in restoring them, please read this flyer to learn more about the program.
