Abstract: (Please note, this is an extended abstract only) The Pueblo of Santa Ana (Pueblo) is located in north central New Mexico within southeastern Sandoval County, about 15 miles north of Albuquerque and 45 miles south of Santa Fe. The Pueblo encompasses approximately 79,000 acres of trust lands. Between 1999 and 2001, the Pueblo of Santa Ana Department of Natural Resources, through a United States Environmental Protection Agency grant, collected quantitative and qualitative baseline ecological data from 145 long-term monitoring plots established across the Pueblo. These data were used to develop a plant association and watershed assessment that facilitated the Pueblo's ability to identify priority natural resource concerns and implement ecosystem-based management and restoration practices.
