Welcome to the New Mexico Public Lands Information Center
From scrubby deserts in the south to the tall ponderosa forests of the northern mountains, New Mexico offers a rich variety of scenery and a multitude of recreational activities. Along with these natural riches, the Land of Enchantment is famous as a cultural crossroads where ancient Indian pueblos and centuries-old Hispanic villages exist side by side with space-age technology centers.
More than 45% of New Mexico is in public ownership. You can explore our state's public lands on this website or at the New Mexico Public Lands Information Center, 301 Dinosaur Trail, Santa Fe, NM, 87508. We are open Monday - Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Mountain Time.
