Current Initiatives

  • 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.
  • Trails and Parks

    Connect people to the North Central New Mexico landscape through a trails, parks and open space system that offers health, recreation, alternative transportation and resilient economic benefits to the community.

A Heartfelt Message from our Executive Director

Did you know that the average American child spends just 4 – 7 minutes a day playing outdoors? It’s true. Even in places like Taos, kids are spending much of their time inside. The average American child spends just four to seven minutes a day playing outdoors and up to seven hours a day staring at a screen. Research shows it’s bad for their brains—and their bodies. Diabetes, attention deficit disorder, heart disease, depression, myopia, allergies, and asthma have all skyrocketed. Each year, Taos gets a bit more gets chopped up by scattered development and the wildlife and cattle get pushed farther away; the kids lose out on a place to play and explore, and our families and elders miss vital connections to home and the lands they love. But you can change that.
