Friends of Las Vegas National Wildlife Refuge

Calendar of Events

Late summer through early winter is a busy season for the Friends of Las vegas NWR. 

Our annual Concert for the Birds will be held on Sunday, September 24, at Las Vegas NWR.

Tentatively Oct 14 we have a guided hike at Rio Mora NWR.

Sundays in November are the Fall Flight Festival at Las Vegas NWR, celebrating the migration of waterfowl down the flyway east of the mountains. It's the only time of year when visitors can drive along the 4 1/2 mile back road to see sandhill cranes, snow geese, ducks of every variety, coots, grebes, mergansers, and eagles lurking nearby hoping for lunch.
We will show our support for wildlife and our local National Wildlife Refuges by entering a float in the Las Vegas Electric Light Parade in early December.
Details about these activities are shown in the events calendar below.

    Join us for a great guided hike at Rio Mora National Wildlife Refuge!

    Saturday October 14 (tentative) we will gather on Loma Parda Road at 9:00 a.m. We will hike across the short grass prairie, up a slight incline to an overlook of the Mora River canyon, along the rim and across one rock dam restoration areas. On the guided tour you will learn about the impacts of erosion in Northern New Mexico and the attempts being made to restore the prairie. Bring a snack, water, sunscreen, good hiking shoes, insect repellent and a hat. The hike is approximately 2 hours.
