The New Mexico Wilderness Alliance

A partner at the Albuquerque, New Mexico, law firm of McGinn, Carpenter, Montoya & Love, PA, Kathy (Kathleen) Love represents plaintiffs in civil suits. Dedicated to community outreach, Kathy Love donates to the New Mexico Wilderness Alliance.

The nonprofit New Mexico Wilderness Alliance has protected the state’s wilderness since 1997. People from across the country, including scientists, religious leaders, and civic groups, have shown their dedication to this landscape by sponsoring the group and its many activities. Members use administrative protection and stewardship to ensure that these properties retain their natural beauty for animals and humans alike.

One of the New Mexico Wilderness Alliance’s most notable campaigns over the past couple of years involved earning the Rio Grande del Norte recognition as a national monument. This region includes numerous remarkable features, including the Servilleta lava flows; a 150-foot-wide gorge; the 10,000-foot-high Ute Mountain; and the Rio Grande Migratory Flyway, a route utilized by hummingbirds, herons and other birds. In 2007, the New Mexico Wilderness Alliance began its efforts to have this land federally protected. Six years later, President Barack Obama used the Antiquities Act to designate this area a national monument.
