Indentifying and Protecting Wildlife Corridors

On our mural front – Bosque School seventh grade classes will complete whimsical cacti and these will be installed directly on the PNM substation walls, adjacent to the Placitas Recycling Center. A 4’x8′ panel of Wild Horses will be placed to the right of the “Protect Our Wildlife Corridors”  and join the other ecosystem/ animal panels. Stamped clay tiles of EVERYONE who has helped in some way will be placed on the Recycling Center Wall to the left of the driveway opening.
The 4th 9 foot by 6 foot mosaic panel – focusing on the riparian ecosystem, “the bosque” – will be started in January by the 8th grade Advanced Art class at Bernalillo Middle School who will design and make the big animals. We are lucky to have guest speaker Timothy Smith, Biology Technician at Sandia Pueblo, join the class for a first Monday field trip to the bosque at Kuaua (Coronado Monument), and come into the classroom the next day to share about the Pueblo’s efforts to re-introduce wild Turkeys to their lands. Algodones Elementary students will participate making plant tiles for the 4th panel, as Placitas Elementary students did last year for the Grasslands panel.
