NMiF: Our Land - Valle de Oro

November 10, 2017 – The Valle de Oro National Wildlife Refuge in the South Valley is an open green space surrounded by industrial businesses. It was once a dairy farm. When local residents heard the property was going up for sale in 2012, they came together to raise money to purchase it and craft a vision for a space as a welcoming area for recreation and wildlife.

We travel to the Valle de Oro this week with correspondent Laura Paskus in the latest installment of Our Land: New Mexico’s Environmental Past, Present and Future.
