Valle de Oro—Albuquerque’s own urban National Wildlife Refuge—is inviting the community to voice their own unique ideas, concerns and visions for the South Valley dairy farm-turned-urban-sanctuary during Build Your Refuge Day. During several hours on the morning and afternoon of Saturday, Sept. 29 (to be precise, 10am to 2pm), all are welcome to help build trails, share ideas for the design of the visitor center and contribute their wisdom as to what kind of interpretation programs the Refuge should provide. Not only do folks of all-ages get to connect with the place and the staff there, but free agua frescas and food trucks are on-hand at this wonderful and free event. (Maggie Grimason)
