Outings & Events

Northern New Mexico Group Meetings and Events

Field trip to the Four Corners area Friday-Sunday, Sept. 18-20. Explore some of the special geological and paleontological treasures in Lybrook and nearby badlands with BLM paleontologist Sherrie Landon and meet with local Navajo leaders in this greater Chaco area experiencing ground zero in the recent explosion of oil and gas fracking. They will likely be able to show us some remote Chaco outliers and discuss what we can do to help with these vexing issues. Stay at the Angel Peak campground Friday and Saturday.

Northern Group Sierra Club and Beer: Redrock Wildlands

Come join your fellow Sierrans for a Sierra Club and Beer gathering at The Commons, 2300 West Alameda, corner of Camino Carlos Real, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 9.
Terri Martin of the Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance will share some beautiful images and an inside update about the magnificent but still unprotected redrock wildlands of southern Utah.

The future of the redrock hangs in the balance this year! Learn about the Greater Canyonlands and Bears Ears monument proposals and, more problematic, the latest news on Utah Rep. Rob Bishop’s public land legislation.

Be an Albuquerque Bosque Sentinel

Albuquerque is one of only two urban places in the country that protects its riparian zone as a natural place rather than a developed urban park.

Santa Fe Outing

Join us for a morning work event, cleaning up some overgrown brush along the old Chile Line RR bed at the foot of Buckman Road. We will meet Sunday morning, May 24, in the parking lot by the mailboxes, 1/4 mile in from Hiway 599 on La Tierra Road, to carpool down to the end of the sometimes rough Buckman Road. Alan Hamilton, Rio Grande Returns, will lead our group, and share with us some of the restoration efforts that have been recently made in this scenic area next to the Rio Grande River.

July-August-Sept 2015 outings/hikes

Sign-up is by contact with leader (phone, or email if shown). To go you’ll need to sign a waiver that the leader will provide. Dogs only allowed as noted. Trips are normally FREE (pay when carpooling) and open to non-members (spread the word!), though we do like it if you join the Club to increase our local and national clout.
