Albuquerque — The Middle Rio Grande Conservancy District, in cooperation with local Fire and Law Enforcement agencies, is re-opening the bosque in Sandoval, Bernalillo, Valencia and Socorro Counties effective Tuesday, July 16, 2013 at 8:00 a.m.

This re-opening encompasses all MRGCD owned and co-managed bosque areas including those within the City of Albuquerque Open Space in the Rio Grande Valley State Park in Bernalillo County and the City of Albuquerque.
Due to recent rainfall in the mid-valley region, the District is lifting its closure order issued on May 22, 2013. All visitors are encouraged to use bosque facilities and trails but are reminded of the MRGCD fire policy that prohibit open fires, smoking, motorized vehicles and spark emitting equipment within the bosque area. The MRGCD continues to assess the drought conditions on a daily basis and should conditions warrant, a closure order could be re-issued.
