Highlights from the Week of September 20, 2021
There's a lot going on in the City Different!
The Last Word on River Talks

The popular 2021 River Talk Series finished with a great talk by Reese Baker of The Rain Catcher. In total there were eight lectures concerning all things River and Watershed -- vegetation management, Santa Fe Basin geology, how to be a watershed hero, and rain gardens. The City extends sincere thanks to the over 150 attendees for their participation in these events. Stay tuned for the 2022 River Talk schedule!
A Great Day for A Pick-Me-Up
Volunteers from all walks of life showed up to give back during Keep Santa Fe Beautiful's fall cleanup, Toss No Mas, last Saturday. Together, they showed how a little teamwork can make a big difference in the appearance of our beautiful city – great job, everyone! (If you missed it or want to do more, you can always organize your own volunteer-led cleanup at any time, any place.)
Refresher: Ranked
Choice Voting
Ranked Choice Voting was voted into effect in 2008 and used in 2018. With municipal elections coming up on November 2, it's time to brush up on how it works. The bilingual votedifferentsantafe.com provides a brief video explanation (including a sample ballot) and answers to some frequently
asked questions.
TreeSmart Girl Scout
Inspired by TreeSmart Santa Fe, Girl Scout Sofia Horn (pictured here with Councilor Romero-Wirth) has adopted Martin Luther King, Jr. Park, at 2739 Calle Serena. To improve the flora and habitat sustainably, Horn met with the neighborhood and local experts, planned the design and installation, and will now coordinate the effort to plant the right trees, shrubs, and pollinator flowers. The public is welcome to dig in tomorrow morning from 8 to noon. Find out about other upcoming TreeSmart events here.
