Join Our Access Watch Program
NM BHA wants to up our game by finding knowledgeable volunteers in every corner of New Mexico to let us know when your local county commission tries to close a road or a piece of property is improperly closed to the public. Throughout the West, BHA members are the eyes, ears and voices of public lands. Please help us launch this new Access Watch program in the Land of Enchantment – email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
