Sports & Outdoor Actvities
From hiking, biking, fishing and hunting, to water activities or hot air ballooning, we have options for everyone who enjoys the outdoors.
Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham signed New Mexico’s Outdoor Recreation Division into law on April 2, 2019. New Mexico recognizes Outdoor initiatives are a powerful engine to grow wealth and job opportunities in New Mexico. Written into the law was the first-ever Outdoor Equity Fund, a grant intended to help disadvantaged youth get outside.
“When we create a focused office to both attract new businesses and boost existing concerns, we will plant our flag alongside Colorado, Montana, Utah and others—and indeed we have the potential to surpass them,” Lujan Grisham said when the bill passed the Senate. “With this targeted investment, we can and will attract more young adults who emphasize the outdoors in where they choose to live; we will provide important new opportunities to disadvantaged youth through the first-of-its-kind equity fund; and we will expand the economic reach of this industry to all corners of this state.”

Listen to the sounds of birds in the bosque and water in the acequia. <br />
Breathe in the earthy smells of livestock and tilled earth, and roasting green chile in the fall. Revel in the lush greenness of the best remaining example of the middle Rio Grande cottonwood forest. The Bosque's 400 acres along ten miles of the river provide habitat for over 180 species of migrating and nesting birds, making bird watching a favorite activity.
