Albuquerque, NM | June 30, 2011
The Nature Conservancy in New Mexico has temporarily closed the Santa Fe Canyon Preserve due to fire danger. Additionally, all trails in and around the area are closed.
The Santa Fe Canyon Preserve is a peaceful place brimming with wildflowers, willows, ponderosa pine, songbirds, deer and bear. Once a hub for the city’s hydroelectric industry, the preserve is now an oasis enjoyed by thousands of residents and visitors to Santa Fe each year. Throughout the year, outdoor enthusiasts take pleasure in hiking the preserve’s trails, as well as bird and wildlife watching at this 525-acre open space.
The Santa Fe Canyon Preserve will re-open when the fire no longer poses a threat
