Bosque Restoration Project

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – After years of work, a habitat restoration project along the Bosque is now complete.

Over the last two years, the Water Authority has planted some 11,000 trees and shrubs.

The purpose of the project is to improve breeding and nesting conditions for the endangered Rio Grande Silvery Minnow and Southwest Willow Flycatcher.

The Water Authority says it’s important to give back to the river that gives so much.

The project was completed with the help of volunteers including local school students.

Inmate laborers from Metropolitan District Court were also involved.
