Mission Statement

SiteWatch is a statewide volunteer program coordinated by the State Historic Preservation Division and funded by public and private partnerships. It is founded upon the belief that the preservation of New Mexico’s cultural heritage is essential to our state and nation’s knowledge and quality of life. SiteWatch seeks to conserve and protect cultural properties by coordinating the efforts of New Mexico’s citizens and landowners as they serve as stewards and educational docents of their own cultural resources.

Program Overview

SiteWatch is a statewide volunteer program coordinated by the New Mexico State Historic Preservation Division in cooperation with federal, state, and local government land & resource agencies, and private land owners. By reducing the degradation of cultural treasures due to vandalism, theft, and natural processes through monitoring and education SiteWatch ensures that irreplaceable heritage resources can be appreciated by current and future generations of New Mexicans.
