New Mexico Volunteers for the Outdoors

Although not based in Raton, this group of volunteers often works in our region supporting parks and public lands such as Sugarite Canyon State Park.  Projects range from easy to difficult and usually last a day or two; some of their projects involve multi-day backpacking to work sites.  The group arranges for overnight camping near the job sites and provides some meals for volunteers.
