Local Open Space Advocates to Celebrate Parks, Open Space, Trails and Trees

 

The community has plans for an informational festival on Sunday

 

The Sierra Club, local Open Space advocates, and a host of others from throughout the community will celebrate parks, open space, trails and trees at an informational festival on Sunday. Tim Keller will also be speaking at the event.


The event will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday, September 17, at Tiguex Park, 1800 Mountain Road NW.

It will be an opportunity to show support for Albuquerque’s system of Parks, Open Space and Trails. Those attending can explore issues of Bosque restoration, water conservation, air quality, clean energy, climate change, trees and bees.

Organizers have said the first 60 families will get a free tree, and there will be a free raffle to win a rain barrel.

Keller’s campaign platform calls for ramping up recycling, water conservation, open space enhancement and Bosque restoration to reduce our carbon footprint and link city planning to resilience. He wants to create local jobs by investing in solar, wind and distributed generation to make the city’s net energy bill zero.

The event on Sunday, September 17 will be hosted by The Sierra Club, local Open Space advocates, and a host of other organizations.
