Gila Cliff Dwellings NM PostiFire Rehab
Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument receives thousands of visitors every year. The compounded effects of a severe fire and following drought left the hillside just below the Cliff Dwellings in a dangerous condition: lots of bare, dry soil, with no biomass to hold it in place. With these conditions threatening a valuable cultural resource, the National Park Service enlisted Borderlands Restoration to lead the effort in stabilizing the area.
