New Mexico Uplift Initiative
Public Land Solutions worked with the Outdoor Recreation Division of the New Mexico Economic Development Department to complete a statewide recreation asset review, titled the New Mexico Uplift Initiative. This review included extensive stakeholder outreach and detailed discussions with land managers to create statewide and county-by-county recommendations. These recommendations incorporate best practices in experience management on public lands. The goal of the project is to provide equitable outdoor access to improve the quality of life for all residents and visitors, while simultaneously utilizing recreation access to natural places to inspire business investment in communities that need it the most.
