Serving as a regional representative in the southern part of the state, Tanner Schaub has been spearheading the chapter's work on improving access in New Mexico's bootheel region for over a year. The region is one of the most ecologically rich and diverse in the state, providing habitat for Coues deer, mule deer, coatimundi, Montezuma quail, ringtail cats and a growing Gould's turkey population. Access to the region's Peloncillo Mountain Range, Coronado National Forest and other public lands is severely limited and is being lost systematically over time. With Tanner's contributions and the support of other passionate public landowners we hope to restore access that can be maintained and enjoyed by future generations indefinitely. Thank you for your great work, Tanner!
