Valle de Oro National Wildlife Refuge, the Southwest’s first urban refuge will serve as an urban oasis for both wildlife and people on a former dairy farm just a few miles south of New Mexico’s largest metropolitan area. The refuge will fulfill the goals of President Obama’s America’s Great Outdoors initiative to work with community partners to establish a 21st century conservation ethic and reconnect people, especially young people, to the natural world. Through the EPA’s Urban Waters program, Valle de Oro was recognized as part of key conservation and restorations projects along the river. Additionally, the refuge will serve to enhance the river corridor and bring the Rio Grande into the daily lives of the citizens of Albuquerque.
