Free Bosque Nature Walks
A monthly easy guided walk exploring Bosque wildlife… and they even throw in coffee and a snack! Next ones: September 4 and October 2, 2011.
The Open Space Visitor Center hosts a free Bosque Wild nature walk on the first Sunday morning of each month, kicking off at 7:30 am.
Biologist, naturalist and birder Elsa Bumstead leads the way, exploring the natural flora and fauna along the river, and filling you in on the history of Bosque. The 90 minute walk is described as ‘easy’ and afterwards there’s coffee and a snack provided by Sunflower Farmers Market.
The walk is limited to 20 people, and the minimum age to join the walk is 7 years.
You DO need to register for these popular free walks, and they recommend booking in advance, ideally a month before the walk.
