Hike the Gila Riparian Preserve

New Mexico

Join Martha Cooper, The Nature Conservancy's Southwest New Mexico field representative, for a guided hike of the Gila Riparian Preserve. One of the southwest's last free-flowing rivers, the Gila River supports riparian habitat and the verdant gallery woodlands.

Walk under the cottonwood and willow tree canopy, look for early spring songbirds and learn about the Conservancy's long-term vision for the preserve and protecting the river and riparian habitat.
