Sabo Preserve

The 30-acre Sabo Preserve was donated to the Conservancy by Public Service Co. of New Mexico (PNM).

It is the sole location of Pediocactus knowltonii, a tiny cactus that originally only grew on a single small hill near the Colorado border in northwest New Mexico. The greatest threat to its survival is illegal collecting by cactus enthusiasts and habitat destruction caused by oil and gas development. The cactus is both a federal and state listed endangered species.
