Taos Mountains are Calling

The Taos Chapter welcomes you to the cool, high mountains of northern New Mexico! Enjoy the culture of Taos, the alpine terrain and lively discussions of climate change and restoration from public lands to backyard native plant gardens at the 2024 NPSNM state conference.
The conference will begin with a meet-and-greet in the Sagebrush Inn & Suites Courtyard on Thursday evening from 4-7pm. Friday is our activity day. Choose a hike, workshop or field trip, then join us at the Taos Chapter greenhouse in Rio Ferando park for a reception from 3-5pm. Saturday will feature a full-day of speakers and panel discussion, followed by an optional banquet at the Taos Country Club. On Sunday you can explore Taos, the Enchanted Circle or the Rio Grande del Norte National Monument on your own, or join a special group activity before you head home.
