Janos Grasslands, Chihauhaun Desert, Northern Mexico. Chihauhau province. Rancho El Uno (TNC property)..A well is tapped for water by Mennonite squatters on a disputed boundary at Rancho El Uno (check fact). Once the aquifer is reached and a well established, grasslands will be turned over for cropland...The Janos grasslands are threatened by increasing production agriculture, (particularly by Menonite groups) turning grassland over and tapping the aquifer beneath. ..This region is a critical wintering ground for grassland birds, with important biodiversity and large scale prairie dog towns supporting reintroductions of black footed ferrets.
