Join us from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 8 around the Rotunda at the state Capitol in Santa Fe for Lands, Water and Wildlife Day.
This is a chance for citizens to demonstrate support to elected officials and the public for protecting our climate, clean air, clean water, and conservation of wildlife and public lands in New Mexico. We’ll run lobbying trainings at 10:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. (meet at the podium in the Roundhouse) to give you the know-how to talk to your legislators — and help you find them after the training!
At noon in the Rotunda, some of our Legislature’s environmental champions will speak about important legislation protecting our lands, water and wildlife — including a bill banning coyote-killing contests and legislation that would forbid traps on public lands in New Mexico.
At 1 p.m., we’ll all march outside to join a protest calling on Gov. Martinez to stop blocking efforts to save the endangered Mexican gray wolf. Join us for one or all of these events on Wednesday!
