On January 21, 2005, the Endangered Species Branch of New Mexico Ecological Services Field Office hosted a meeting for the Northern New Mexico Pueblos, their staff and representatives, to discuss the proposed critical habitat for the southwestern willow flycatcher(flycatcher). Attending the meeting were Service staff from the Regional and Field Office, and representatives from the Northern Pueblo Agency, the Tribe of Santa Clara, and San Juan Pueblo. The Pueblos of San Juan, Santa Clara, and San Ildenfonso have lands that are included in proposed critical habitat for the flycatcher. The Service staff discussed the designation of critical habitat in the context of Secretarial Order 3206. The Pueblo representatives were given a template for writing a habitat management plan and Service staff offered to assist them with individual plans.

This meeting demonstrated conservation by communication and coordination.
