Get Up and Out! With BernCo Bernie This Sunday

Bring the family, go geocaching at UNM North Golf Course Urban Open Space

Bernalillo County – County mascot BernCo Bernie welcomes kids, families and Balloon Fiesta visitors to celebrate the first-ever Get Up and Out! outdoor recreation event this Sunday at the UNM North Golf Course Urban Open Space.

This special event features geocaching contests and technical sessions, as well as golf clinics, a climbing wall, music and more.

Geocaching is an outdoor treasure hunting game where participants look for hidden objects using GPS coordinates.

Admission and parking are free at this special event, scheduled from 1-4 p.m. at the UNM North Golf Course Urban Open Space, 2201 Tucker Road NE.

Sunday’s event also kicks off a special geocaching event, Burque Birding GeoFlight. This contest will feature geocaches at the UNM North Golf Course Urban Open Space as well as other caches at surrounding Open Space properties.

The Burque Birding GeoFlight caches each have a bird theme to celebrate Albuquerque’s Urban Conservation Treaty for Migratory Birds. Discover what makes Albuquerque a special place for birds, name the common birds, and have fun geocaching at some of the county’s most scenic Open Spaces. Limited, numbered bird coins are available for cachers who find nine out of 12 geocaches during this special geocaching event.

BernCo Bernie and geocaching pics are included below:

Dear Neighbors,

The Streets and Traffic Enhancement Program (STEP), which is the proposed successor to the City’s Neighborhood Traffic Management Program, has been submitted to City Council for adoption. STEP establishes requirements and procedures for the implementation of traffic calming measures in our neighborhoods. Councilor Benton is sponsoring the legislation, R-14-99, by request of the Administration.

As Chair of the Land Use Planning and Zoning Committee (LUPZ), Councilor Benton moved last week to defer LUPZ action on STEP until the October 15 meeting in order to provide neighborhood associations and the public adequate time to review the program and issue any comments pertaining to it.

The resolution and draft plan can be viewed online: R-14-99. Councilor Benton invites you to provide input for consideration prior to the next LUPZ public hearing. Send your comments to Tom Menicucci, Policy Analyst II, City Council Office, 768-3126, You are also welcome to attend and make comments at the hearing on Wednesday, October 15 at 5:00 pm in the Council Committee Room on the 9th floor of the City/County Government building.

Please share this with your neighbors and other members of your association!
