What does the Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks National Monument mean to you?
I have been a resident of Las Cruces for many years but a small business owner for just under a year. For me and many others, the Organ Mountains are a “beacon” of sorts, providing an anchor to the beauty that is southern New Mexico. When I drive around town, the Organ Mountains are a constant presence on the eastern side of the city. Now, having a designated National Monument in our city means the mountains, Kilbourne Hole, Aden Crater, and the Sierra de Las Uvas are protected for generations to come. I am at peace knowing our cultural and historical heritage is preserved.
We started our business after the designation of the National Monument. Since that time, we have to buy more food since our business has increased significantly. Many people at the Saturday Farmers and Craft market say they are going to the OMDP National Monument while they are visiting Las Cruces. Our Organ Mountain Desert Peaks Bread Pudding is popular with our customers and we named our green chile chicken enchilada grilled cheese sandwich the “New Mexico” because of the tourists coming to our town that want a taste of southern New Mexican foods. We love highlighting the National Monument and already know it is a good thing for our city.
