Our Work

Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks SupportMikeGroves attribution Organs 250x100

The opposition is rallying against our Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks National Monument proposal. They are leaving negative comments on Sen. Heinrich’s Facebook page and calling Washington. We need your help to show Washington that there is still strong community support for the national monument and that the opposition does not represent the community as a whole. Please take a moment to take action in two ways:

1. Visit Sen. Martin Heinrich’s Facebook page here and leave positive comments about why you support the national monument. We’re also trying to get as many likes as possible on this post.
2. Call the offices of Sens. Heinrich and Udall to let them hear your voice concerning the Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks National Monument.
Senator Martin Heinrich: 202-224-5521 (DC), 505-346-6601 (ABQ), 575-523-6561 (LC)
Senator Tom Udall: 202-224-6621 (DC), 505-346-6791 (ABQ), 575-526-5475 (LC)

Thank you for all you do. Together we have the power to make the Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks a reality.

Join us for a public meeting

Please join us for a meeting with members of the BLM’s Farmington Field Office to discuss their upcoming Resource Management Plan Amendment, which will consider oil and gas development in the Mancos Shale formation surrounding Chaco, and which will complete an inventory of Lands with Wilderness Characteristics.

The meeting will be held on Tuesday, May 6, from 6-7:30 p.m., at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History in Albuquerque (1801 Mountain Road NW).

We will hold a brief comment writing workshop at 5:15 p.m. in the museum to discuss background information about the plan amendment, and to review some sample comments. Pizza will be provided!
