Creating a Network of Public and Backyard Wildlife Refuges in Albuquerque

Join us for a preview of the new ABQ Backyard Refuge Certification Program developed by the Friends of Valle de Oro National Wildlife Refuge (NWR), with support from organizational and agency partners. You will learn about Albuquerque’s local Urban Wildlife Refuge, Valle de Oro NWR, and how efforts to develop and restore this new Refuge in collaboration with community members and partners has sparked new programs to work with community members to create a network of habitat for wildlife and people on public lands, residential lots, schools and neighborhoods throughout our community. You will get a sneak peek into the ABQ Backyard Refuge Program and the opportunity to sign-up to be one of the first to receive a free copy of the Backyard Refuge Educational Guide to support your efforts to make more wildlife friendly spaces at your home and in our community.

Presented by Aryn LaBrake - Executive Director, Friends of Valle de Oro National Wildlife Refuge
