As an outcome of the America’s Great Outdoors Listening Sessions in 2011 and 2012, the New Mexico Outdoors Coalition formed to promote collaborative partnerships amongst stakeholders involved with outdoor recreation and conservation in the state. Through community activities and forums, the Coalition works to establish a comprehensive platform to enhance dialogue and action around topics of conservation, recreation, education, health, tourism, youth engagement, stewardship, job creation and more. To date we have developed a network of over 80 partner organizations.
Our activities have included organizing National Get Outdoors Day at Tingley Beach, assisting with National Public Lands Day at Valle de Oro National Wildlife Refuge, organizing public forums amongst the states’ environmental educators around the Environmental Literacy Plan, bi-monthly forums on diverse topics related to our mission and purpose, and monthly conference calls to spotlight outstanding organizations and organize committees to conduct the business of the Coalition. Additionally, we assist our partners in getting the word out through our network of public, private, and non-profit organizations and individuals.
Participation is open and everyone is welcome!
