Make a Difference Day at the Piedra Lisa Open Space
Registration is required: Register online at the Center for Non-Profit Excellence.
Make a Difference Day is a national day of community service held annually at the end of October. Each year, volunteers throughout Albuquerque work to help improve the quality of life in our community through service projects.
We will be working on a variety of tasks including trail maintenance, native shrub planting, sign replacement, trash cleanup, and graffiti removal.
The Open Space Division and our partner organization the Nicodemus Wilderness Project participate in Make a Difference Day by organizing a variety of conservation activities that take place at the Piedra Lisa Open Space located at the end of Candelaria.
Join us for refreshments and an end of the event prize drawing!
(Please note that t-shirts will not be available this year.)
The Nicodemus Wilderness Project is a worldwide organization based in Albuquerque and the adopters of the Piedra Lisa Open Space. Their mission is "to protect wildlife and our environment and to build future conservation leaders by engaging youth in environmental stewardship projects worldwide".
