FOHEV is a volunteer organization incorporated as a nonprofit 501 (c) 3 entity (applied for). We operate under a “Cooperative Agreement” with the New Mexico State Parks Division and our purpose is to assist the Parks Division and the Parks by enhancing, preserving and promoting Park use. FOHEV helps the Parks in many ways with interpretative, educational and recreational programs and acts as an advocate group for the park system. All of our activities and money raised are used to benefit the communities of the Chama Valley, Heron Lake and El Vado Lake State Parks and the New Mexico State Parks Division.
Great news! Now, you and I have a real chance to help preserve Heron and El Vado Lakes State Parks. These New Mexico State Parks are our heritage. Yours, mine, and - if we are vigilant and responsible - our children and grandchildren. They mean clean air, fresh water, recreation and quiet for generations to come.
Friends of Heron and El Vado Lakes State Park (FOHEV) are dedicated to the protection, restoration and continued enjoyment of these wilderness treasures.
Won't you consider becoming a member of "the Friends" this year? Friends members are: parents, teachers, ranchers, birdwatchers, business people, hunters and more.
