Come join WildEarth Guardians for this unique opportunity to help restore native riparian vegetation along the Rio Grande adjacent to the newly designated Valle de Oro National Wildlife Refuge in South Albuquerque on April 1.
When and Where:
Valle de Oro National Wildlife Refuge
7851 2nd St. SW Albuquerque, NM 87105 (see map)
9am to 2pm
Our tree planting events are a breathtaking display of what can happen when we come together to heal once-degraded waterways. At the beginning of the day, a somewhat barren landscapes lays before us. A few hours later the area is a forest of newly-planted native trees.
These trees become restored streamside habitat for wildlife and improve water quality.
Please contact Jim Matison, Restoration Director, WildEarth Guardians to RSVP. Participants must RSVP by March 24, 2017. Space is limited.
Hope to see you there,
Wild Places Program Director
