Locally known simply as the Bosque, Albuquerque’s riverside forest has Mother Nature’s spring symphony on offer.  Step under the canopy of the cottonwoods and listen to the ensemble of birds; compare animal tracks in the Rio Grande mud; follow the drifting bug; and wonder what on earth the tangle of rusting metal angle iron, cable and wire could possibly be. 

The Bosque is the year-round oasis in our high desert environment and offers habitat for a large variety of birds, mammals, insects, amphibians, reptiles and plants. This is an especially active time for wildlife.  Is the Bosque a mystery to you?  Would you like to learn more about its wild residents and its history?  Join veteran naturalists for a guided walk into this unusual habitat and discover this world away from the city.

Free but registration is recommended one month in advance.
