NM Public Lands Rally @NMWildlife @OurPublicLands

Why is it so important for you and members of your community to attend this year’s Public Lands Rally? 
Whether you are a hunter, hiker, angler, bird watcher, horseback rider, camper or just enjoy New Mexico’s beauty, our environment, national parks, monuments and forests we want to encourage you to come out our public lands rally! We’ve got a wide variety of speakers representing New Mexico’s diverse communities and this is great way to learn about issues impacting public lands and our environment and how you can make a difference at the local, state and federal level.

This year’s rally is really important and timely because our Public Lands are under  attack—We are seeing a range of issues from folks like those in Utah at the state and federal level trying to transfer federal public lands to the states or private interests to be parceled, developed or sold off, to increased fracking and mining, to trying to get the natural resources under these lands (and even under private lands), to some in congress trying to shrink or take away our national monuments. Also we are encountering a range of other issues like damage to sacred sites and petroglyph defacement, poaching, illegal dumping and being locked out of our public lands. All of these threats reduce access, integrity and opportunity for everyday New Mexicans and the public to enjoy these amazing lands that are part of our culture, history and identity as a nation and a state.
