Via Posada Open Space   pulaski2

Saturday, 2/07/2015, 8:00 AM

Contact Larry Benson, LawRBenson@aol.com, 505-821-7999

 

This is a previously unscheduled project to assist Boy Scouts of Troop 6 in making a new hiking trail in Albuquerque's Via Posada Open Space, located on the west side of the Four Hills Community.  As part of this project, one of the scouts, Michael Liles, will be demonstrating planning and leadership skills to help qualify as an Eagle Scout.  Jim Sattler and some of his staff from the city's Open Space Division, will provide technical support, safety oversight, and quality control.  Our tasks will include clearing grass, relocating other vegetation, and installing rocks where needed to create a sustainable new trail while blocking off the old trail segment with replanted vegetation and other erosion control measures.  This work will follow up on a project the NMVFO did in the same location last August.  Troop 6 will provide snacks and drinks in the morning and some pizza for lunch.   Because of the time of year, pay attention to the latest weather forecast and dress accordingly.  Wear sturdy boots, work gloves, hats, and a day pack with water and extra snacks if desired.  Please contact Larry Benson no later than February 4 to sign up for this project.

 

Directions:  From I-40 Exit 167 at the east end of Central Blvd. (by its intersection with Tramway Blvd), go south on Four Hills Road down through the Tijeras Arroyo about 7/10 of a mile to Stagecoach Rd.  Veer right (west) on Stagecoach Rd about 4/10 of a mile to a 3-way stop.  Turn right on Via Posada and go down a short hill to Navarra Way.  The entrance to the Open Space is on the left just a short distance past this intersection at 724 Via Posada SE.  Park along the curb on Via Posada or Navarra Way (being careful not to block any driveways).  Please plan to arrive by 8:00 AM.
