January 12, 2018 – This month on “Our Land: New Mexico’s Environmental Past, Present and Future,” we visit Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge near Socorro.

Many people visit the refuge during the winter months to get an up-close look at the tens of thousands of sandhill cranes, snow geese and ducks that migrate to the Middle Rio Grande each year. But the refuge also hosts all kinds of other wildlife, including raptors, song birds, elk, deer, javelina, bobcats and mountain lions.

Supporting all that wildlife, as well as the thousands of visitors who come to the refuge each year, means staffers and volunteers have their work cut out for them throughout the year. As refuge manager Kevin Cobble helped us understand, there are crops to grow and water to move around. And even more sights to see!
