514 Acres Added to the Burnt Corn Special Recreation Management Area

Land includes archaeologically important sites and new dedicated public access

April 6, 2017

Galisteo Basin, New Mexico

The Trust for Public Land today announced that 514-acres has been added to the Bureau
of Land Management’s (BLM) Burnt Corn Special Recreation Management Area (SRMA)
and the Burnt Corn Area of Critical Environmental Concern (ACEC). The acquisition
provides opportunity for future hiking trails on the property from adjacent open space,
while permanently protecting a culturally-rich area.
Public access is planned for the
property after a site-specific management plan is completed.

Located in the Galisteo Basin between Albuquerque and Santa Fe, the property adjoins
Santa Fe County’s Thornton Ranch Open Space, along with other private conservation
lands. This acquisition ensures connectivity within a larger landscape. The permanent
protection of this property is a key component of ongoing multi-partner efforts to create a
new long distance regional trail network within the Galisteo Basin.
