Jerry Lovato, Albuquerque Metropolitan Arroyo Flood Control Authority will be the speaker.To address flooding in the South Valley,AMAFCA has built surge ponds to take and store storm water from the Isleta Drain and slowly return it to the drain. These sites, including Raven Pond and Laguna de Cuervo, are planted with natural vegetation and are attracting birds and other wildlife. We’ll learn about these sites and other work AMAFCA is doing to benefit birds.
