One of the state’s premiere environmental organizations, the New Mexico Wilderness Alliance
was organized in 1997 with the aim of permanently protecting some 4.5 million acres of potential wilderness. Its goal is to build coalitions among diverse groups, including some not traditionally favoring conservation, and to nurture a new generation of advocates.
The group counts 5,000 to 6,000 members. Hikes, service projects, and overnight trips help raise public awareness of the value of wilderness. Current political campaigns include protection of the Organ Mountains in southern New Mexico near Las Cruces and the Rio Grande del Norte area northwest of Taos; added wilderness in the Sangre de Cristo mountains; protection of Otero Mesa from mining; and advocacy for wolf release and reform of grazing on public lands. Your support
helps keep New Mexico’s wild places wild.
