Albuquerque attorney Geoffrey Scovil has a long history fighting to ensure everyone has equal protection under the law. Since 1998, he has built a practice committed to indigent criminal defense and the protection of constitutional rights. Geoffrey Scovil and his wife support many charitable groups, including the New Mexico Wilderness Alliance, which promotes the designation and protection of wilderness spaces in the state. Since its inception in 1997, the group has helped protect the Columbine Hondo Wilderness, the Organ Mountains Desert Peaks, and the Rio Grande Del Norte National Monument, among other areas.
Beginning September 9, 2016, the New Mexico Wilderness Alliance will be hosting a trek in Utah to Cedar Mesa. Led by history professor Dr. Andrew Gulliford, participants will explore an ancient Puebloan site, learning about the rich architectural and environmental features of the landscape. The adventure costs $450 per person, including meals and permits, and proceeds will benefit the work of the New Mexico Wilderness Alliance.
Geoff Scovil received a BA in history, philosophy, and ethnic studies from the University of Texas at Austin.
