Today! Urban Farm and Harvest Festival

The city's Open Space program does a lot more than provide landing pads for wayward hot-air balloons. Besides harboring wildlife and hosting a huge range of workshops, walks and art exhibits, the Open Space Visitor Center (6500 Coors NW) tucks a working farm and demonstration garden into its 24 acres on the Bosque. Today’s Urban Farm and Harvest Festival is a prime time to get acquainted. Meet the Open Space bees (and pick up a jar of their honey), watch kids march around in farm-themed costumes, listen to live music and taste local foods from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. There's no charge to get in. For a festival schedule and more on the city's farming initiatives, visit

There are a few roads, several songs and plenty of pronunciations for our fair river traversing three states and two countries. Treat her right today and team up with the the Albuquerque Open Space Division for National River Cleanup Day. Starting at 8 a.m. and running until 1 p.m., help remove trash, debris and any other unsightly offenders of our precious waters. To register, visit REI (1550 Mercantile NE) or call 247-1191.

Every year, Albuquerque's Open Space Division teams up with local volunteers to clean up trash, graffiti and debris around the Sandia foothills. Lend a helping hand today as the clean-up crew meets at the end of Copper, east of Tramway. Pack a lunch, take plenty of water, wear comfortable clothing and get there early to register. The spring clean-up runs each Saturday in April from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at several locations around the Sandia foothills. Parking is limited, so carpooling is strongly encouraged. For more information, call 452-5200 or visit (Adam Fox)

Those dollars were allocated for upgrades to three fire stations, protective equipment for firefighters, 200 police cars and beefing up the party patrol.
