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.

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.

Projects include:

  • trail maintenance
  • trail building
  • trash cleanup
  • graffiti removal

Arrive at 8:30am to sign in.

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". Their program helps to elevate young people (especially at-risk and low-income kids and teens) into leadership roles by engaging them in environmental stewardship projects.
