Rio Grande Agricultural Land Trust

What Is RGALT?

RGALT's goal is to protect New Mexico's natural resources and rural quality of life for the five New Mexico counties of Bernalillo, Sandoval, Sierra, Socorro and Valencia. RGALT is made up of farmers who live in the Middle Rio Grande Valley and are dedicated to the preservation of working farms, ranches, wildlife habitat and open space. RGALT is a community-supported, nonprofit, tax exempt charitable organization qualifying under Section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code.

RGALT's Mission & Vision

RGALT's mission is to preserve open space, agricultural lands and wildlife habitat through the use of voluntary conservation easements to be “held in trust” by RGALT.   RGALT's vision of the Middle Rio Grande valley is a landscape rich in vegetation and wildlife with water in the river and ditches, thriving farms and rural communities, and farmers' markets that link rural and urban interests.
