About Friends of Rio Grande del Norte
The Rio Grande del Norte National Monument is at the heart of one of the oldest continually habituated landscapes on the continent. This is an area that is not only stunning, it also has played a role in shaping the cultures for centuries and is an integral part of our community – and economy – today.
