........................................................................................................................................................................................

Socorro Soil and Water Conservation District manager Nyleen Troxel-Stowe resigned her post as Socorro’s Save Our Bosque Task Force treasurer at the March 5 SOBTF board meeting.

Troxel-Stowe said she wants to avoid any appearance of a possible conflict of interest. She now works weekends for DMACK, a SOBTF subcontractor for the Rhodes Ranch SOBTF restoration project in Bosquecito.

SOBTF president Doug Boykin accepted Stowe’s resignation. Boykin said he and vice president Matt Mitchell will sign checks until a new treasurer is named. Troxel-Stowe has resigned from the board but will continue as technical adviser to the organization.

The Save Our Bosque Task Force is a nonprofit corporation formed in 1994 composed of a coalition of volunteers and government agencies whose mission is to preserve the riparian habitat along the Rio Grande in Socorro County for the benefit of native species and the people of the valley.
