Take a few hours to clean-up the public lands you love! NM BHA is teaming up with Fish and Wildlife Service to help clean up the Rio Puerco Unit on the Sevilleta National Wildlife Refuge. This 590 acre area adjacent to the Rio Puerco has had litter build up over the years and we want to restore this beautiful piece of public land. We will start at a primary cleanup spot and depending on how we do we will then move to a secondary area.
Each volunteer will receive a ticket for door prizes (BHA T-shirt or water bottle). Water, snacks and trash bags will be provided. Event is kid friendly with parents/guardian attendance. Bring work gloves, close toed shoes and a service-oriented attitude!
