Valle de Oro 2018

“Build Your Refuge Day” at Valle de Oro National Wildlife Refuge in Albuquerque’s south valley, was unlike any trail building project I have done before with the NMVFO. Ten volunteers from the group acted as co-trail bosses at five work stations along a section of the Camino Real, to supervise any member of the public that wanted to volunteer an hour of so to help build trail, spreading crusher-fine (gravel). Ed and I headed station 5.

Many people showed up to help.
