News and Announcements
Below is a link to an article printed in the Albuquerque Journal on August 19, 2013 on the bears in the Sandia's and their access to food.
We just finished our latest project, a bird blind near the Stubbe Center. There is even a small pond to help attract wildlife. Within a few minutes of filling the pond we had attracted several different birds. Be sure to check it out next time you're at the Center!
School is out for the year and our final numbers are in! For the 2012-2013 school year we taught:
9,435 APS students, teachers, & parents
4,441 non-APS students, teachers, & parents
1,184 general public
For a total of 15,060 people!
Many thanks to all the staff, volunteers, interns, student teachers, and sponsors who helped make this year such a success!

Last week, while on outreach to Whitfield Wildlife Conservation Area in Belen, Paul and Chris were interviewed by KUNM's conservation reporter Sidsel Overgaard. It's a good story on the impact of No Child Left Behind on science education. You can listen to it here.
We are excited to announce that we received a grant from the Albert I. Pierce Foundation to further develop our high school monitoring program! This grant will allow us to build new and strengthen existing relationships with middle and high schools around Albuquerque. Students will be visiting the center to monitor Air & Water Quality, Forest Health, Dendrochronology, and Wildlife. Thank you Albert I. Pierce Foundation!
