 Take a look at this inspirational video our partners at the U.S. Forest Service made

at Valle de Oro National Wildlife Refuge and around the Albuquerque area.

Please check out the U.S. Forest Service on Facebook.

The National Wildlife Refuge System is committed to building partnerships which encourage conservation and preservation of our natural and cultural resources.

Partnerships with the Refuge System bring innovative approaches to solving land management issues in the most protective manner. Scientifically-informed and technologically-based stewardship of our public lands, water, wildlife and special places must be a collaborative effort between the Refuge System, private landowners and organizations, and other government agencies if conservation efforts are to succeed.

The Valle de Oro National Wildlife Refuge was made possible because of the partnership efforts of many. Partners not only played an important role in creating the refuge, they continue to support the refuge’s wildlife management and conservation mission in many ways.
