About this site

The fields observed around the John P. Taylor, Jr. Memorial Trail are home to a lot of change throughout the year. Though some of the fields are managed for overwintering birds, various wildlife may be observed throughout the year. You may notice that some fields may lay fallow for a year as crops are rotated. Periodically, tractors, water, and wildlife move through the fields through planting, mowing, and irrigation. 

About Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge

Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge is located in San Antonio, Socorro County, New Mexico. Situated between the Chupadera Mountains to the west and the San Pascual Mountains to the east, the 57,331 acre Bosque del Apache was established in 1939 to provide a critical stopover site for migrating waterfowl. The refuge is well known for the tens of thousands of cranes, geese, and ducks who winter here each year. Over 30,000 acres of Bosque del Apache are designated wilderness.
