The New Mexico Regional Team serves interpreters and informal educators throughout New Mexico.

This team attended the Earth to Sky Academy in October 2022 (see selection announcement). Earth to Sky regional teams go through a competitive application process and are invited to travel to NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center for a week of training in NASA climate science, communication techniques, and Earth to Sky methodology. After completing the Academy, each team offers one or more climate communication courses in their region, while serving as a resource and focal point for their community of interpreters and informal educators on an ongoing basis.
