Northern New Mexico

About the Northern New Mexico Group

The Northern New Mexico Group is one of five regional groups within the Rio Grande Chapter of the Sierra Club.

We cover all of Northern New Mexico except for the Los Alamos area and work on projects ranging from a successful campaign to ban the plastic bag in Santa Fe to curtailing oil and gas exploration and pipelines near Chaco Canyon National Historical Park, forest health, protection of roadless areas adjacent to the Pecos Wilderness, and work for local and statewide candidates at election time.

We are also publish the 8th edition of the popular Day Hikes in the Santa Fe Area guidebook.

For outings, please visit the calendar or the Meetup group.
