Pajarito Environmental Education Center (PEEC) is working with the Valle de Oro National Wildlife Refuge to offer a guided tour of the Southwest’s first urban refuge at 10 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 3. This day trip offers a unique perspective on connecting with nature in urban environments.
Valle de Oro offers a unique environmental education and recreation opportunity in a highly populated area while promoting a wildlife conservation message. It is part of the National Wildlife Refuge System, a national network of lands and waters managed for the benefit of wildlife, habitat and the public.
The tour group will meet at the refuge in Albuquerque at 10 a.m. The tour will last approximately 2 hours, after which participants re welcome to stay at the refuge until 5 p.m. for birding, hiking and exploring. Participants are asked to bring a lunch, snacks, water, sunscreen and a hat.
