A Bird's Eye View of Family Fare
21 January 2007

Looking for a new venue for family outings in the New Year? Bosque del Apache holds the key. This beautiful wildlife refuge is located about 20 miles south of Socorro. Since its 1939 creation as a man-made bosque flood area, it has become the home to thousands of birds, elk, deer, and many other animal species.

Current count of Sandhill Cranes is about 6,000 with Snow Geese and Ross's Geese weighing in at around 51,000. You can find about 210 Canada Geese, too. Your bird friends may be visited an hour before dawn until an hour after dusk. There is a Visitor's Center, picnic tables, public restrooms, and lots of time to enjoy getting to know your fine-feathered friends better.

There is no cooking there and no fires. Dogs must be on a leash. The cost is $3.00 a car, so bring the whole family.
