Golden Open Space

May 20, 2017 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm


Contact Leader(s): Chris Fritzsche, 505-504-3768, fritzsche.christopher@gmail.com to sign up.

The Golden Open Space, acquired in 1964, consists of 1,180 acres of rugged terrain and is among some of the first properties set aside by the City of Albuquerque for the preservation of nature. Breathtaking views of mesas, colorful arroyos and several mountain ranges make this remote and seldom-visited property a great escape from the city. We will be building new trail as part of the City of Albuquerque’s trail system at the Golden Open Space, which is located just north of the San Pedro Creek Estates, off NM 14. Whether approaching from Albuquerque or Santa Fe, come by NM 14 (aka HWY 337); near the Bernalillo/Sandoval county line, turn on to Via Entrada through San Pedro Creek Estates. Access granted only for the project through private property; detailed directions will be provided to volunteers later.

We intend to rendezvous with Jim Sattler, Assistant Open Space Superintendent, no later than 8:30 AM on Saturday, May and begin work shortly thereafter. Volunteers should wear long pants, long sleeves, sturdy boots (absolutely no sandals or tennis/athletic shoes), work gloves; helmets and eye protection are highly recommended. Also, bring sun and rain protection (just in case), plenty of drinking water snacks and a lunch. Registration for this project is required for planning purposes; please sign up through the project leader (info below) no later than 12:00 PM on Thursday, May 18th.
