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, Refuge bus for the afternoon. We will identify as many species of birds as we can until dusk. Trip includes dinner in Socorro.
