Discuss the potiental reduction of the Rio Grande Valley State Park while exploring the area. Reservation recommended.

The Bosque Action Plan, the City plan governing the bosque, designated the southernmost part of the Rio Grande Valley State Park as a "Wildlife Preserve."  The County created the Durand Open Space on the west side in the far South Valley, giving access to the Wildlife Preserve area.  The residents of the far South Valley now have local access to lovely bosque trails, but at the expense of chipping away at the wildlife preserve area.  Is this a good thing or a bad thing?

Meet at the Durand Open Space. Take Rio Bravo to Isleta, then 1.6 miles south on Isleta. There will likely be mosquitoes, so long pants and long sleeves and/or repellant are highly recommended.  Bring binoculars if you have them so we can check out any birds we encounter.

RSVP to or 232-3023.
