Saturday, May 30
10:00 am

Give back to the Bosque in support of native plant habitat.  Habitat restoration begins with the Yerba Mansa Project’s first community field day.  The focus will be on removal of invasive Ravenna Grass from the understory, which is critical preparatory work for the replanting of natives that will take place later. This event is part of the larger Yerba Mansa Project to restore native plants in the Bosque and provide educational programs for the community.

Wear protective long sleeve clothing and bring work gloves and a shovel, if you have them.  (Open Space will provide gloves and tools for those who don’t have them.) This event is open to all members of the community so bring your family and friends. Work will take place at our restoration site located along Tingley Drive, south of Central.

Please RSVP (505) 897-8831 with the number in your party so we know how many volunteers to expect and so we can provide parking information and other details.

Bring a pencil drawing of your planting area, pencils, erasers, highlighters and a clipboard to work on your drawings.

Biography: Isaura Andaluz’s experience as a seed steward, farmer, and cook have translated into efforts to revive “forgotten crops and foods” through Cuatro Puertas’ Arid Crop Seed Cache, a living seed bank of native and drought-tolerant crops.
