Mission & Vision

Mission

The Santa Fe Conservation Trust partners with our community to keep northern New Mexico’s living lands and people flourishing together. We protect culturally and environmentally significant landscapes, ignite people’s passion for nature and enable the continual regeneration of our healthy place.

Vision

We envision a future where everyone in northern New Mexico cherishes nature and works to preserve it for this and future generations.

The Santa Fe Conservation Trust (The Conservation Trust) was founded in 1993 and received its 501(c) (3) status in December of 1993. The 501(c) (3) designation is a Federal IRS designation which means that people may donate to The Conservation Trust and receive a tax deduction.
