Our Next Bosque Restoration Field Day:

Saturday September 26, 2020 (9am to 12 noon)

 

Help us restore Bosque habitat, Yerba Mansa, and other native plants. Our restoration work includes the removal of invasive non-native Ravenna Grass from the understory along with the replanting and reseeding of native grasses, herbs, and shrubs. These events are open to all members of the community so bring your family and friends. Work takes place at our Albuquerque restoration site located along Tingley Drive, south of Central. Park in the lot at the south end of all the fishing ponds, which is .8 miles south of Central. Wear protective long sleeve clothing and bring plenty of water as well as work gloves and a shovel, if you have them.  City of Albuquerque Open Space will be there to train our work crew and provide gloves and tools for anyone who needs them.  Please RSVP with the number in your group so we know how many volunteers to expect and we will contact you with more details prior to the event. RSVPing is especially important due to COVID precautions. We will be limiting our group size, staggering arrival times, and spreading out small work groups or individuals.




Stay tuned as we plan more free community classes and events for 2020.
