The Open Space Division and REI invite you to a day of service to help protect and nurture the bosque and river, including trail work, revegetation, and trash clean-up. There will be activities appropriate for all ages. Don't forget about the prize drawing at the end of the event! Arrive promptly by 8:30am to sign in and enjoy donated morning snacks. REI also provides free t-shirts to the first 80 to register at!

This year's Dia del Rio will take place at the Shining River area of the bosque, which can be reached via Rio Grande Blvd on the south side of Paseo del Norte. Parking is limited so please carpool!

Bring gloves, sun protection, a sack lunch, and plenty of water.

Or, if you have a favorite area of the bosque, you can organize your own clean-up. Call Jim Sattler at (505)452-5213 to sign up and we'll provide the trash bags and haul away the trash!
