We’re getting out and about in September

Come celebrate the Law Center’s 27th birthday!

September 11 and 18: Join us for sunset horseback rides in the beautiful Cerrillos Hills south of Santa Fe.

Broken Saddle Riding Co. is giving Law Center members and their guests a special rate ($65 for 70 minutes) for these rides - but saddles are limited!

Galisteo BasinSeptember 21: Horses not your thing? Come for a hike with conservation biologist (and super NMELC member) Kelly Gallagher.

Kelly will lead a morning, easy-to-moderate, 2-ish mile hike in the beautiful Galisteo Basin. We will discuss the ecology of this special place along with local efforts - with Law Center help - to stop oil and gas drilling in 2008. Plan on meeting at NMELC office at 8:00 am or 8:45 am at the Galisteo Basin Preserve Thumb Trailhead. See map of trails.

We would love for you to join us!
