"Creating a Choir of Birdsong: Restoring Native Bird-Friendly Habitats to Northeastern New Mexico"

LAS VEGAS, NM: When the wind chill dips and another bout of cold weather shows up in the forecast, we start wishing and dreaming of spring more than ever. Birds are now migrating as the weather warms up.With bird habitats disappearing what do our native birds need?

The Las Vegas National Wildlife Refuge is a nesting area for nearly one third of the documented bird species found in New Mexico. Join Debbie Pike of the Fish and Wildlife Service and discover how the wildlife refuge is working to restore bird-friendly habitats for the native species, as well what you can do in your own backyard to help make a habitat for these bird species. This program will be held at the CCHP/Santa Fe Trail Interpretive Center, 116 Bridge Street, Las Vegas, New Mexico, Thursday, April 16, 2015, 7:00PM.

The Glimpses of the Past series are free in partnership with the Citizens Committee for Historic Preservation. For more information, contact Fort Union National Monument at (505) 425-8025, visit www.nps.gov/foun, or like on us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/FortUnionNM.
