Families are encouraged to take advantage of a free outdoor activity for kids starting June 22 at Bachechi Open Space.
The county’s Open Space program is sponsoring the Nature Packs project for the second year in a row. This effort encourages families to get outside and explore the outdoors by learning about wildlife, wetlands, the bosque and more at the 27-acre preserve.
Participants check out a backpack from the Bachechi Environmental Education Building, and can wander the open space. The backpacks contain binoculars, books on trees and wildlife, and sketchbooks, for example.
“Bernalillo County is proud to offer this free family activity at this outstanding North Valley open space,” Open Space Manager Colleen Langan-McRoberts says.
Backpacks are reserved either in person at the Bachechi Environmental Education Building or by calling 505.314.0398.
The program is free and occurs Saturdays through Aug. 10, from 9 -11:30 a.m.
