Group asks for help documenting shutdown’s impact on NM wild spaces

News

New Mexico Wild needs your help documenting the government shutdown’s impact on New Mexico’s wild spaces. 

Without federal officials to do so, the group is creating a list of public lands that are wholly or partially shut down. 

People are encouraged to post photos of places they visit to show the status using the hashtag, #OpenNMLands. 

Recent studies show New Mexico is one of the states hit hardest by the shutdown, as the state’s outdoor recreation economy directly employees 99,000 New Mexicans.
