Goal #2: Achieve Wild and Scenic Rivers designation for the greater Gila River and its tributaries. This key protection ensures that over 400 miles of waterways in the Gila region will remain pristine for future generations. Wild and Scenic protections provide security that these exceptional riparian landscapes will continue to support wildlife and all the people who value wildlife including hunters and anglers.

NMWF 2021 Goals

Goal #1: Add at least 50,000 acres to our federally managed public lands in New Mexico. These lands would be purchased with a variety of monies ranging from private donations to dollars provided by the Land and Water Conservation Fund. All acquisitions are the result of an agreement made between a willing seller and a willing buyer. These lands would become publicly accessible to all Americans for hunting, fishing and other public land recreation.

America’s wild land and rivers and the wildlife that live within them have calmed, comforted, exhilarated, and awed people for centuries. For many of our country’s service members, public lands and waters can also provide solace and places to reflect, recover, and reconnect with loved ones.

New Mexico Wildlife Federation

For over a century the New Mexico Wildlife Federation has been working on behalf of sportsmen and women like you.

Since 1914 we’ve advocated for sound wildlife management, access to public lands, protection of our waters, and provided opportunities to pursue the outdoor traditions that helped make America what it is today. New Mexico Wildlife Federation has an amazing record of success. Over the last 100 years our organization has:


  • Helped protect more than 2 million acres of public land

  • Rebuilt depleted game populations
  • Nearby government services


    Comments

    Whether we like it or not ... Continued reliance on Oil and Gas revenue for our state budget would leave us on a permanent downslope for funding education, health care, public lands management, human services and even roads. It’s past time to diversify NM’s revenues! #nmpol #nmleg #nmbudgethttps://ieefa.org/ieefa-u-s-plummeting-oil-and-gas-prices-leave-new-mexicos-budget-short-by-hundreds-of-millions-of-dollars/
    Received the following note from the Albuquerque Water Authority. Please send a note to [email protected] and ask that they consider allowing the water level to increase at Abiquiu Reservoir. Share this to whomever you think will write in, perhaps we can encourage a little common sense and retain a little water during the spring runoff. The current lake levels are very low and the boat ramps are nearly unusable. Raising the lake level would benefit sportsmen, visitors, anglers, and wildlife. Increasing the storage of drinking water also seems to make sense for future dry years. "Our Customer Service Department forwarded to me your inquiry regarding retention of water in Abiquiu Reservoir. The reservoir is our primary storage site for water imported from southern Colorado as part of the San Juan-Chama Project, and as such is a critical part of Albuquerque’s water supply infrastructure. The Water Authority is sensitive to the needs that you mention and works with other agencies to ensure that releases from the reservoir are timed for optimum benefit to all stakeholders. In that vein, we already hold back water in the reservoir every year that we are otherwise permitted to release. This is all by way of saying that we are keeping as much San Juan-Chama water in Abiquiu as we can, and hope to increase storage levels for native water in future years. Please feel free to contact me with any additional questions you may have.
