Organ Mountains Desert Peaks National Monument celebrates 6 years


On May 21, the Friends of Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks will be marking the 6-year anniversary of the designation of Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks National Monument with a virtual celebration via Facebook. We will be debuting a new video as well as special messages from Senator Martin Heinrich, Representative Xochitl Torres Small, Lt. Gov Howie Morales and many other community members.

With COVID-19 restricting the ability to gather, the Friends of Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks are bringing the celebration to you.

“While this event is not what we had originally planned, we are equally excited to celebrate this important milestone with our community and supporters,” said Executive Director Patrick Nolan. “We’re looking forward to announcing the re-imagining of our youth engagement work, presenting our public lands champion award, and hearing from our community about the ways public lands have contributed to their well-being during these hard times.”

Catch the celebration live at the Friends of Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks Facebook page on May 21 at 6 p.m.
