About the Program

The Navajo Nature Trail program is operated in New Mexico by the Navajo Refining Company LL. It is located in a residential area of the City of Artesia, approximately 200 miles north-east of El Paso, Texas. The project site is a walking trail running alongside a street, developed on previously unused land. The trail totals1.6 acres and provides an attractive area for visitors to walk and observe local plants and wildlife which are found at the site. 

Practices and Impacts

Navajo Nature Trail
  • The trail has been planted with regularly monitored and maintained native shrubs, grasses and trees to provide habitat for wildlife such as pollinators, birds and bats;
  • Features to support populations such as nest boxes and a butterfly puddling area have been added;
  • Local volunteer groups help with clean-ups and maintenance of the site, which is accessible to the public and has signage for visitors to learn more about the project.
