Bosque Wild: Guided Nature Hike
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. If you haven’t noticed, there is flirting going on in our inter-urban habitat. This is an especially active time for wildlife. Is the bosque a mystery to you? Or 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.
