The New Mexico Land Conservancy is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors whose primary role is policy-making, governance and strategic planning for the organization.

MEET OUR STAFF
The real heroes of land conservation are the landowners who participate in conservation easements. Not only good stewards of the land in the present, they are people with a vision for the future.

The New Mexico Land Conservancy, a state-wide non-profit organization, was established in 2002 to help preserve and protect New Mexico’s land heritage: wildlife habitat, productive agricultural land, recreational spaces, and scenic open space throughout the state.
The challenge is real. In New Mexico, rapid population growth combined with a widespread desire for accelerated economic expansion have caused concerned people to draw together to identify and protect high conservation value lands. NMLC enables preservation of those lands primarily through conservation easements with landowners. But that’s not all we do.
NMLC also advocates for land preservation. We provide accurate and timely information about the techniques and benefits of private land conservation. We educate landowners, public policy makers, and the general public on the value of conserving land. We promote policy and legislation that furthers voluntary land conservation and enhanced incentives for private landowners. We provide technical assistance and workshops.
We are fortunate that many people understand and appreciate the value of these lands and care enough to work to conserve them. The moment to act is at hand. We invite you to join us in protecting New Mexico’s precious land heritage.
