Thank You for Making our Event a Huge Success!
Thank you to everyone who attended our Celebration of Land Conservation on November 8th! It was a great event and we raised some good money for land conservation. See the photos on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/NMlandconservancy
We hope you were able to attend and enjoy wonderful remarks by Hampton Sides, join us in presenting the Jane Wing Petchesky Conservation Award to Jim Winder, eat great food, have a silly photo taken in the photobooth, and dance to the fabulous Syd Masters and the Swing Riders. And how about that silent auction!

NMLC Has Conserved 117,797 Acres!
Our latest project, a 2,800-acre ranch in Catron County, brings us to the brink of 118,000 acres conserved. We couldn't do this work without the generosity of our landowners, who have given up development rights in order to conserve the lands they love, as well as the individuals, businesses and foundations which make our work possible.READ MORE
