Pajarito – Los Alamos

About the Pajarito - Los Alamos Group

The Pajarito Group of the Sierra Club was established to protect the Valles Caldera from private developers. In 2015, the caldera was transferred to the National Park Service management, which should better protect the area. We continue to lobby for judicious management of the Valles Caldera National Preserve along with covering environmental issues in Los Alamos County and the Jemez­ Mountain area, including:

  • Reducing single-­use shopping bags in Los Alamos
  • Retaining open space
  • Working towards a sustainable Los Alamos
