The New Mexico Wilderness Alliance is dedicated to the protection, restoration, and rewilding of New Mexico''s Wilderness areas. We focus on forward-looking measures to develop an active and educated Wilderness constituency throughout the state. We build upon New Mexico''s long history of Wilderness protection in developing a new Wilderness movement here in the Land of Enchantment. To do this, we incorporate grassroots organizing, media outreach, public relations, and scientific research strategies to carry out a comprehensive Wilderness advocacy campaign. Our dedicated volunteers are the force behind our work.


The primary goal of the New Mexico Wilderness Alliance is to ensure the protection and restoration of all remaining wild lands in New Mexico through administrative designations, federal Wilderness designation, and on-going advocacy. To do this, we employ the following programs: Grassroots Organizing, Wilderness Awareness, Coalition Building, Wilderness Inventory, Wilderness Protection, and Membership Development. Each program has its own objective, but jointly our programs are designed to help accomplish the overall long-term goal of Wilderness protection.

NMWA scored a huge victory the other day by protecting nearly 20,000 acreas of wilderness! New Mexico has only had 2 wilderness designations since 1987 and NMWA did both of them!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the fact that they keep protecting land in New Mexico when nobody else seems to be able to accomplish it.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

they are always out there doing restoration work on our public lands.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

kind, helpful, and extremely knowledgeable about protecting our wildlife and public lands.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

protect not just New Mexico but other precious ecosystems in the Southwest.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
