Recognizing that human and environmental systems are inseparable and interdependent, Gila Resources Information Project pursues two goals:

  1. To protect and nurture human communities by safeguarding the natural resources that sustain us all
  2. To safeguard natural resources by facilitating informed public participation in resource use decisions.

Gila Resources Information Project (GRIP) was incorporated as a 501(c)(3) organization in 1998.

Organized in 1984 to protect the free flow of the Gila and San Francisco Rivers and the wilderness characteristics of the Gila and Aldo Leopold Wilderness areas, the Gila Conservation Coalition (GCC) is a partnership of local environmental and conservation groups and concerned individuals that promote conservation of the Upper Gila River Basin and surrounding lands.
