ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Tomorrow, Friday, March 17, at 10:15 a.m. MT, U.S. Senator Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.) and U.S. Representative Melanie Stansbury (D-N.M.) will host an event to showcase Tribal and local support for community-driven legislation to protect the Buffalo Tract.
Interested media can RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Senator Heinrich, a member of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, and Representative Stansbury, a member of the House Natural Resources Committee, introduced the Buffalo Tract Protection Act to withdraw four parcels of Bureau of Land Management (BLM) lands in southern Sandoval County, including the Buffalo Tract and the Crest of Montezuma, from any mineral development, including gravel mining.
For more than a decade now, New Mexicans have stood united in defense of the Buffalo Tract. This landscape serves as a critical wildlife corridor between the Sandia Mountains to the south and the Sangre de Cristo Mountains to the north. The parcels of land that have come under threat of gravel mining are also intermixed with residential communities.
