Helping Keep the Rio Grande

Posted on: May 17, 2015, by :

Like the proverbial postal carrier- wind, rain, sleet and hail couldn’t keep us from helping clean up the Rio Grande river and bosque. The weather in the Land of Enchantment for the month of May has been unusually wet and this weekend the trend continued. That didn’t stop more than 100 volunteers and officials from the City of Albuquerque Open Space from having a great morning.

The river’s edge was more lush than usual and the river was flowing pretty well.

We also had a treat of seeing a pair of Great Horned Owls watching their nest.

It was a great day to be out doing what we can to help preserve our environment. We hope that others will also make the commitment and work toward sustainability and community engagement.
