Restore Rocks

Wild Wonders

I've heard that people who live in cities become apathetic when not exposed to nature. Our spirits dull, personalities slowly become anesthetized, and just numb to the beauty of everyday life. Luckily for us, we have nature just a block away most of the time—although that sometimes isn't enough. Recharge your spirit this Saturday, October 21, at Greater Albuquerque Habitat for Humanity ReStore's Wildlife Rescue of New Mexico hosted class during the Restore Rocks! Event starting at 9am. The good folks from the rehabilitation center are showing live raptors for us city folk while sharing information about their natural habitats (the birds, not us, because—despite loving nature—I feel like I was meant to live in a cafe). Throughout the day, visitors can enter prize drawings for $3 to $10, enjoy live music, activities for the whole family and deeeelicious food. (Rini Grammer)
