About the Central New Mexico Group
The Central New Mexico Group of the Rio Grande Chapter covers the middle part of the state from east to west and includes Albuquerque, Bernalillo, Valencia County and Socorro. Our volunteer leaders are active in many areas, including protecting the Albuquerque Bosque and making sure Mayor Richard Berry’s “Rio Grande Vision” doesn’t disrupt the wild character of our natural urban escape.
We also advocate for better city energy policy and volunteer for pro-environment candidates and recently returned a pro-environment majority to the Albuquerque City Council. One example is our project related to the Sandoval County Oil & Gas Ordinance.
One of our community efforts is to highlight the works of local artists in our First Friday Arts series. Join us or stop by the office gallery. You will also be supporting the chapter with your purchases.
