  • Columbine Hondo Wilderness - 2014

    The Columbine Hondo Wilderness Act was signed by President Obama on December 19, 2014, protecting 46,000 acres in Taos County. The New Mexico Wilderness Alliance helped form the Columbine Hondo Wilderness Coalition in 2010 and was instrumental along the path toward wilderness designation, helping to get resolutions and support letters from the Town of Taos, Taos Cycling Coalition, Taos Chamber of Commerce, Taos Pueblo War Chief and Taos County Commission.

  • Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks - 2014

    The New Mexico Wilderness Alliance has been leading conservation efforts in Doña Ana County since 2004, when we opened our Las Cruces field office. On May 21, 2014, after a decade of work, President Barack Obama designated the Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks National Monument by use of the Antiquities Act. This move by the president safeguards nearly 500,000 acres of culturally, historically and biologically rich land in Doña Ana County. We continue to work for wilderness areas within the new national monument. Read More

  • Sabinoso Wilderness - 2009

    Rising 1,110 feet from the surrounding plains, the Sabinoso unit sits upon the Canadian Escarpment, which is composed mostly of the Jurassic Morrison Formation and Triassic Chinle Shale.

  • Ojito Wilderness - 2005

    The designation of Ojito Wilderness in 2005 was one of the New Mexico Wilderness Alliance’s first conservation victories. In the mid-90s, NM Wild formed and established itself as the statewide grassroots voice for wildlands. In the mid-2000s, the organization started pushing for Ojito Wilderness. Efforts included collaboration with the Zia tribe, New Mexico Gov. Bruce King and other statewide elected officials. After passing through both the U.S. House of Representatives (unanimously) and U.S. Senate, President George W. Bush signed the Ojito Wilderness Act into law on Wednesday, October 26, 2005. Read More
