Listen to the sounds of birds in the bosque and water in the acequia. 

Breathe in the earthy smells of livestock and tilled earth, and roasting green chile in the fall. Revel in the lush greenness of the best remaining example of the middle Rio Grande cottonwood forest. The Bosque's 400 acres along ten miles of the river provide habitat for over 180 species of migrating and nesting birds, making bird watching a favorite activity.
