New Mexicans have come out in great numbers to support the preservation of the Rio Grande del Norte.
The Rio Grande del Norte is a national treasure. It is here that we find the iconic landscapes that for centuries have shaped our nation’s vision of the West. Biologically diverse and spectacular, this swath of wilderness spanning 236,000 acres through rich wildlife habitat offers a paradise for backcountry hiking and fishing, an outstanding place for observing nature in all of its splendor, and a refuge offering solitude and spiritual rejuvenation.
This year, “This American Land,” had a segment highlighting Rio Grande del Norte and the people who are working to protect this special place.
