Please join us for New Mexico Land-Water-Wildlife Day at the Roundhouse!
Meet with representatives from dozens of conservation organizations. Attend a lobby training session to learn how you can talk with legislators and be a crucial part of the law-making process to protect our natural heritage. Join us at the Rotunda for a press conference with legislators who work to protect our public lands, water resources and wildlife.
This is an opportunity for everyone who cares about the environment to demonstrate to elected officials that public lands, rivers and wetlands, and wildlife conservation have overwhelming public support.
