Thank Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell for Visiting Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks

Ask her to advise President Obama to designate the Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks as a national monument.

On January 24, 2014, Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell visited Las Cruces and toured portions of the Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks proposed national monument with Sens. Udall and Heinrich. She held a public meeting to hear how local citizens feel about the national monument proposal. Sec. Jewell saw first-hand how passionately New Mexicans feel about this majestic landscape. Now is the time to thank her for her visit and urge her to recommend that President Obama designate the Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks National Monument using the authority granted to him in the Antiquities Act. Take action now for the Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks.


Ask Obama to Create Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks National Monument

We have been waiting years for permanent protection of the Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks in Doña Ana County.  

Now that President Obama is settling into his second term, let's get things off on the right foot by asking for his active support for a new national monument in the Land of Enchantment.  

Please contact President Obama and ask him to use the Antiquities Act to create an Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks National Monument.


Thank Obama for his action on national monuments

On March 11, President Obama added the Point Arena-Stornetta Public Lands along California’s Mendicino Coast to the California Coastal National Monument.  This is a great step forward for Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell and for the administration to start to follow through on its commitment to public lands protection.  

Please take a moment to thank President Obama and urge him to make the Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks the nation’s next national monument.
