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 protection of the Greater Santa Fe watershed, successfully promoting the State Wildlife Action Plan for at risk species, increasing city and county solar funding, educating decision makers about Zero Waste, conducting air monitoring and assessing health impacts from oil drilling in Chaco communities,and  assisting Water Sentinels in testing northern rivers for contaminants.
