Columbine Hondo Wilderness Protection Project

In 2014 as a result of local widespread community support. The Columbine Hondo Wilderness was designated as a formal Wilderness by Congress. The Columbine Hondo Wilderness is a very important watershed for the Rio Grande corridor, and it is a source of clean air for New Mexico. Thanks to everyone who helped make this a reality! Now we are making plans with the Carson National Forest to work on hiking bridge replacements along Columbine Creek. If you would like to volunteer next Spring to work on this project, please contact us.
