Welcome to the Statewide Organization Page

With measures to limit the spread of Covid-19 in transition, in-person meetings are returning to some chapters, not others as yet. 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. See chapter pages or scroll down our website 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 was held in Albuquerque with the theme "A Land Ethic for Seven Generations." In 2023, the conference will be hosted by the El Paso chapter, most likely in early fall to beat the heat. Attendance will be more limited for this Chihuahuan Desert, Wild West Texas immersion event. Watch for details in the spring of 2023.
