The Purgatoire Valley Foundation
Our vision is a community surrounded by an environmentally responsible landscape, vibrant with healthy natural resources and abundant wildlife, protected in perpetuity by conservation easements, and dedicated to improving environmental education.
Purgatoire River Watershed
The Purgatoire Valley Foundation was formed believing that investing in youth and education is one of our best strategies to protect and improve our natural environment.
We consider stewardship of natural resources to be a personal responsibility and we pledge to preserve, protect and enhance our natural resources to the best of our abilities.
We seek to develop programs that provide leadership, create opportunities and inspire advanced knowledge in our natural environment.
PVF has developed ways to complement and advance successful environmental initiatives in the Purgatoire River watershed as well as become a leader in developing new environmental initiatives such as the Trinidad Water Festival and an Environmental Scholarship program, both of which are in collaboration with the Culebra Range Community Coalition
Collaborations include local area land owners, conservation organizations, governmental agencies, educational institutions, and area non-profits.
