Primary Programs:

Land: Protecting Important Natural Areas
The Santa Fe Conservation Trust is a qualified New Mexico land trust. We work with you every step of the way to ensure the easement donation process moves smoothly and your goals and needs are met.

Trails: Preserving the trails that connect our communities
The Santa Fe Conservation Trust in partnership with the City of Santa Fe and Santa Fe County engage volunteers — individuals, clubs, schools, businesses, and non-profits — as stewards of the trails that make our community an outstanding place to live and to visit.

Skies: Beautiful, Inspiring, Endangered New Mexico’s Oldest Natural Beauty… Our Starry Night Skies
The night sky has informed and inspired humankind for thousands of years. Around the globe, regardless of national borders, political ties or spiritual beliefs, all of us live with the night. The night sky is one of the great unifiers of the human experience across time and across cultures. But the invention of the incandescent light bulb changed everything. It’s been estimated that artificial lighting has eaten away at so much of the night sky that two-thirds of the US population can no longer see the Milky Way! Happily, everyone can take simple and effective steps to preserve and restore our beautiful night sky.
