Environmental & Economic Justice Strategic Plan
Check out the Latest Draft Plan
This updated draft of the Valle de Oro NWR 2021-2025 Environmental & Economic Justice Strategic Plan (EEJSP) expands on the first EEJSP produced in 2017 and the Refuge’s goal to adhere to environmental justice principles. Environmental and economic justice practices are ingrained in the activities, programs, and operations of the Refuge as it is developed and restored.
The updated goals, strategies and action items presented in this document are still in draft form and were created with the generous advice and support of our Community Accountability Group (CAG) and residents of the refuge's host communities. The Valle de Oro NWR EJ Leadership Team includes representatives from: Valle de Oro NWR, Los Jardines Institute, & the Friends of Valle de Oro NWR.

hISTORY OF Environmental Justice Community Day at Valle de Oro NWR
The first Environmental Justice Community Day was held in 2015 as a way for neighbors of Valle de Oro National Wildlife Refuge to gather as a community and celebrate the history of environmental justice advocacy in the Mountain View Neighborhood, Pueblo of Isleta and the South Valley. We come together in April each year to celebrate Earth Day, the victory of the neighbors who joined together to establish the Refuge, and gather input and report back on the Refuge's commitments to its community through it's Environment & Economic Justice Strategic Plan.
