The cornerstone of our Wilderness education efforts has long been our Let’s Get Wild program designed to actively educate people about the importance of protected public lands and engage the community in wilderness stewardship and restoration. The program includes our annual Wild Guide, as well as volunteer service projects and hikes. The annual Wild Guide, which provides the dates and descriptions of hikes, projects and educational events offered by New Mexico Wilderness Alliance, is published each year as part of the Let’s Get Wild program.
Our Let’s Get Wild program works to inform people of all ages about New Mexico’s wild public lands and diverse wildlife, and how these treasures are directly connected to our clean air, drinking water, and recreational opportunities. The Let’s Get Wild program helps people experience the natural beauty of New Mexico and gives people the chance to give something back through hands-on projects to restore a trail; identify and remove invasive weeds; inventory a backcountry campsite; or work on a riparian restoration or fence removal project that improves habitat for native fish and wildlife.
