Amigos de la Sevilleta
AMIGOS DE LA SEVILLETA CAPITAL CAMPAIGN
Like many national parks and forests, the Sevilleta National Wildlife Refuge needs informational trail-head signs to provide visitors with a better hiking experience. Four signs are needed: Mesa View Trail, Nature Loop, Wildflower Loop, and the just-completed Ladrones Vista Trail.
Due to federal budget constraints, the Refuge does not have funds for these signs. The Amigos de la Sevilleta is launching a campaign to raise all or part of the required funds. Three of the trails need new signs, each costing approximately $2000 for design, construction, and installation. The fourth trail needs an updated panel at a cost of about $1500.
Please make a donation to fund these signs.
To donate by phone, call the Refuge at 505-864-4021
To donate by mail, please mail a check made out to Amigos de la Sevilleta with "Trailhead Signs" in the memo area to: Amigos Donation, PO Box 1248, Socorro, NM 87801

If you would like to donate the full cost of a new sign ($2000), please call the refuge and ask to speak to Jeannine Kimble. When we install the sign, we would like to invite you to attend.

Mesa View Trail (new panel only)
The signs will be created by a design firm familiar with U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service display standards. The signs are approximately 2’ x 3’, made of a high pressure laminate utilizing printing technology that resists fading due to the sun’s rays. The pedestal is powder-coated aluminum alloy for better corrosion resistance and aesthetic appearance.
