Our Land: Valle de Oro

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.

  1. This is a great mini documentary. Few people knew it even existed. It is such a great tribute to the power of community in partnership with govt. A rare state of affairs these days.

    It has been a joy to see it grow and change. Kudos to all. Thank you, Laura P. for documenting this.
