Welcome to the Statewide Organization Page

With measures to limit the spread of Covid-19 in transition, in-person meetings have returned to our chapters. Check chapter pages on this site for coming events. Virtual meetings with interesting presentations were conducted for the last two years and are still being planned by some chapters. Field trips are ongoing, weather permitting, and are very popular. Once a year, be sure to download a copy of our individual release of liability form (scroll down to Administrative, below) and sign it before participating in any of our outdoor activities (present it or a photocopy on your smart phone, showing your signature, to the NPSNM event leader). See chapter pages or scroll down our homepage to access video recordings of memorable presentations.

An annual state conference is traditionally held in the summer, hosted by one of our chapters on a rotational basis. This year's conference will be hosted by the Taos chapter, July 25-28, in Taos, NM.  Watch for details in in our newsletter https://www.npsnm.org/newsletters/ or find current information at this link.
