Our Mission: Preserving New Mexico’s land heritage by helping people conserve the places they love.

Whether you are a New Mexico native, a transplant or a frequent visitor, one of the things you love most about this state is the beauty and character of its land. It nurtures an amazing variety of species and its unique scenic beauty captivates residents and draws tourists from all over the world. The land is the foundation of the New Mexico experience.

In 2002, the New Mexico Land Conservancy was formed to help preserve this land heritage. To date, NMLC has conserved more than 160,000 acres of land throughout the state at community, watershed and landscape scales.  We call that a good start, but our plans for the future are bigger. We’ve set an ambitious 25-year goal of expanding that to one million acres by 2037.

How will we meet our goal? By partnering with others who share the same passion and vision to keep New Mexico the “Land of Enchantment,” and the same desire to preserve its resources for the benefit and enjoyment of local communities, the public and future generations of New Mexicans.

New Mexicans trust us to preserve the land they love. We invite you to join us in ensuring that the heritage we have received is the legacy we leave.
