Join us on a day-long journey and see thousands of birds at New Mexico’s own world-famous refuge south of Socorro.  Drive there on your own OR come with us in the Museum van (limited van seats! You must let us know when you register). We will stop for a sack lunch (bring your own lunch) and then board a large, windowed Refuge bus for the afternoon. We will identify as many species of birds as we can until dusk. Trip includes a buffet dinner in Socorro.
Laurel Ladwig will give a Bosque del Apache preview talk for field trip participants on Thursday, January 21 at 7 p.m. at the Museum.
Laurel Ladwig is a life-long birder and photographer. Tish Morris is a naturalist and retired Museum educator who has led many field trips for the Museum, including annual trips to Bosque del Apache.
No experience necessary—come and join the fun! Pre-registration is required. Space is limited to 25 participants. Adults only.
Cost: $65 for the field trip and talk ($60 for members)
(Includes the preview talk, limited seats in the Museum vans, snacks, bus and tour guides at Bosque del Apache, and dinner in Socorro)
