About Us


logoA Conservationist focuses on the proper use of public lands, and takes a managed approach to natural resources and wildlife protection.

A Preservationist wants to stop or put extreme limits on public lands, lock up the natural resources and give priority to wildlife.

The “Organ Mountains – Desert Peaks National Monument” designation is a PRESERVATIONIST act, part of a bigger plan to lock up three million acres of New Mexico lands.

It will further damage ranching and farming communities, and reduce recreational opportunities. Jobs and economic benefits will be lost, and border security will be threatened.

The following organizations support a CONSERVATIONIST approach to our public lands, and oppose the extreme measures of the Organ Mountain/ Desert Peaks National Monument Designation.
