Access to our Public Lands is a God-Given Right that we cannot take for granted.
Again we are in danger of losing another popular New Mexico trail system, the Organ Mountain Dessert Peaks in Las Cruses
which encompasses all of the New Mexico Green Chile Challenge Trails!!!
Please read the information located here about what YOU can do in order to help prevent these closures
Additionally, below are Seven Steps you can follow to make an impact in the Fight For Land Use.
Doing at least one step is great and that truly makes you Above Average.
Doing two steps makes you Unique. At five steps, you're a Champion.
But, doing All Seven Steps makes you a TRUE WARRIOR for Land Use!
Being Above Average is great and we appreciate it... but we need THOUSANDS OF TRUE WARRIORS if we are going to win this fight.

And more here on how to use “Talking Points”
BUY ONLY from businesses that support land use and our trails. Ask before you buy.
Visit organizational websites and raffle listings to see what businesses support land use efforts.
Visit businesses in your area, and talk to the folks about land use to get a “feel” for their commitment. Check their shop for landuse logos and handouts.
If they don't support land use TAKE YOUR BUSINESS ELSEWHERE.
ADOPT A TRAIL with your group or club and make it an example for others to follow.
For federal trails with the USDA Forest Service, follow these simple sample guidelines to Adopt a trail.
BE PART OF THE SOLUTION: help your local, state and national associations get better; voice your opinion; be in the land use game
Start by being part of the umbrella, national grassroots, trail-saving outfits like: The BlueRibbon Coalition.
