Las Conchas Fire Recovery
The Las Conchas Fire of 2011 heavily impacted much of Bandelier. Photo points taken year after year will document recovery of the burned area. Vegetation recovery is very important to wildlife survival, reduction in the threat of large scale flooding, and visitor safety. This information will be valuable in park planning for years to come.
Did You Know?
Most rattlesnakes bites are "dry" bites in which little or no venom is produced. That doesn't mean you want to get bit. Keep your distance if you encounter a rattlesnake while hiking.
