  • Rio Fernando Park

    The Taos Land Trust is beginning the process of revitalizing a 20-acres of wetland and agricultural land next to Fred Baca Park. This project will revitalize a section of the Rio Fernando River, bring an acequia back to life, and restore the once-productive agricultural lands of this property.
  • Community Conservation

    From acequia associations who have proved vigilant stewards of the land and water for centuries, to ranchers who have chosen to restore their grasslands, much of our community has worked to preserve our landscapes and livelihoods for years.

“I want to see a park where the public can easily feel like this is their space. I want to see a park with equitable access. Walking space, places for youth to hang out. I want to see a park with edible fruit trees where people can stop off for a snack. I want to see a park where our youth are involved. I know there has been a talk about a lot of agricultural activities. But let’s make sure that is kid focused. I’d love it if there was an after school agricultural club where the kids can take those veggies home, maybe sell them at the market.” – Anonymous, Town of Taos
