The New Mexico Wilderness Alliance is a grassroots environmental organization dedicated to the protection, restoration, and continued enjoyment of New Mexico’s wildlands and wilderness areas. The primary goal of the New Mexico Wilderness Alliance is to ensure the protection and restoration of all remaining wild lands in New Mexico through administrative designations, federal wilderness designation, and on-going advocacy.
WildEarth Guardians protects and restores the wildlife and wild places of the American West. This organization approaches conservation work from many different angles, using a potent combination of scientific analysis, litigation, policy reform, hands-on restoration and grassroots organizing to protect the beauty and biodiversity of areas from the Rocky Mountains to the Rio Grande delta. Their campaigns include working to protect imperiled animals and plants under the Endangered Species Act, ensuring our cleanest waters are protected, and challenging expanding oil and gas drilling.

Since 1991 Laguna Canyon Foundation has worked to preserve the land within and around Laguna Canyon. With the creation of Laguna Coast Wilderness Park, the Foundation has dedicated itself to protecting and enhancing existing parkland as well as to preserving additional wilderness. Through contributions, we provide financial support for the parks and preserves within the regional, 17,000-acre coastal canyon system. We encourage planned gifts to ensure future generations the joy of experiencing this wilderness.
Founded in 1985, the Grand Canyon Trust protects and restores the Colorado Plateau – its spectacular landscapes, flowing rivers, clean air, diversity of plants and animals, and areas of beauty and solitude. As a regional conservation organization we work for common sense, balanced solutions to significant problems affecting the region’s natural resources. Our vision for the Colorado Plateau is: a region still characterized by vast open spaces with restored, healthy natural areas and habitat for all native plants and animals; a sustaining relationship between human communities and the natural environment; and people living and visiting here who are willing and enthusiastic stewards of the region’s natural resources and beauty.
Glen Canyon Institute (GCI) was founded in 1996 as a charitable 501(c)3 nonprofit organization with the mission of restoring a healthy Colorado River through Glen Canyon. Leading the movement to restore this uniquely beautiful place, Glen Canyon Institute immediately began work to conduct scientific studies on the impacts of Glen Canyon Dam, and compiled the results in the Citizen’s Environmental Assessment (CEA), which was released in 2001.
