Trout lovers trek down to Río Grande for native cutthroat

On New Mexico's public lands, volunteer effort can go a long way for wildlife restoration. Each year, nearly 200 volunteers hike around 10,000 cutthroat trout to the edge of the Río Grande del Norte National Monument Wild Rivers Recreation Area. For a fish occupying less than 10 percent of its historic range, sparking interest in conservation is an added benefit in helping the species.
