More than 150 bird species have been seen at Los Luceros and it was once nominated as an Audubon Important Bird Area. This walk provides a unique opportunity to bird in an area with easy access to massive old-growth cottonwoods and fantastic Rio Grande habitat. Participants should come prepared with appropriate clothing for the weather conditions, sturdy shoes, a backpack with water and snacks, sunscreen and a hat.
Attendees that live in White Rock can also meet the group at the Y to carpool at 6:25 a.m. or at Los Luceros at 7:15 a.m. The group will plan to leave by noon and return to Los Alamos by about 1 p.m.
