Free Bird Walks, Nature Walks, Moon Walks
The Rio Grande Nature Center is one of my favorite places to escape from the bustle of town. These regular bird walks, nature walks, and moon walks are free for all, just pay the park admission fee of $3 per vehicle.
- Moon Walks

These moon walks have nothing to do with Michael Jackson! Beat it down to the Bosque on a full moon night to spot nocturnal wildlife during the free walks led by naturalists and Nature Center staff. Reservations are required for the twilight hikes on a moonlit night, and start time is provided when you make your booking at (505) 344-7240.
