    Valle de Oro National Wildlife Refuge, the Southwest’s first urban wildlife refuge, will serve as an urban oasis for both wildlife and people.

    On a former dairy farm just a few miles south of New Mexico’s largest metropolitan area, the refuge fulfills the goals of President Obama’s America’s Great Outdoors initiative to work with community partners to establish a 21st century conservation ethic and reconnect people, especially young people, to the natural world. The new refuge was established due to the partnership efforts of many in the community that recognized the importance of having a wildlife refuge in this urban setting.

    • Join us for Fall Family Fun Days each Sunday at Bachechi Open Space from noon to 5 p.m. This month's theme is Tracking. Learn how to identify wildlife by its footprints, scat and sounds. Every scene tells a story, and reading the scene in nature can help you determine what took place. Did an animal run through here? Was it chasing something? What did it eat as its most recent meal? Learn how you can become a trained tracker!
