Keep New Mexico True

New Mexico has always been defined by the harsh beauty of its landscapes—by past generations who carved out a living from it, and by the next generation that seeks adventure in its folds.

In order to preserve this beauty, it is up to us as the current generation to act as stewards of this land. Thank you for your interest in keeping New Mexico True.

Keep New Mexico True

“...You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.—Jane Goodall ”

Did you know that every year more than 6,000 pieces of trash land on each mile of road in the state? We can keep our state clean and beautiful with the help of dedicated volunteers like you.
