July 10, 7:45 AM - 3:00 PM

Pino trail (ABQ Open Space/Sandia Wilderness)

Join us for a day with the various New Mexico Non-Profit Conservation Groups. They differ in their scope, ranging from legislation and advocacy to boots on the ground stewardship and conservation work. We will start our day on-site with the New Mexico Wilderness Alliance Cibola Wilderness Rangers to learn about the ground monitoring in the local wilderness areas through their partnership with the Forest Service. We will access the Wilderness boundary (~0.5 miles in) via the Pino trail, starting at Elena Gallegos.

We will return to STEM Collaborative Classroom on campus for lunch and an interactive session with NMWA, Sierra Club staff members for a breakdown of the various policy areas within the Environmental Non-Profit sector (i.e. Wilderness, Energy, Environment) and how this plays into STEM/Environmental Policy.

Lunch, swag, and transportation provided.
