Bosque del Apache Wildlife Refuge

Bosque del Apache Wildlife Refuge, New Mexico

Bosque del Apache Wildlife Refuge has cultivated its wetlands to imitate the Rio Grande when it ran wild. Located near Socorro, the 57,000-plus acre refuge is home to the New Mexico meadow jumping mouse, the yellow-billed cuckoo, the Rio Grande silvery minnow and other endangered species. It’s also home to more familiar animals – mountain lions, reptiles, bats, rats and deer.
