THERE’S GOLD IN THE
RIO GRANDE
Mother Nature and Autumn turn the
Bosque of the Rio Grande
into golden hues.
NATIVES AND EXOTICS


Cottonwoods and
Tamarisk (salt cedar)
compete for what water
is available.
With autumnal changes,
their striking colors
almost overshadow their
perpetual competition
and Tamarisk’s invasive
nature.
CAUTION — WORK AREA

Wes Anderson Pond is a
man-made habitat that
has become home to an
industrious beaver or
perhaps two that have
sharpened their
timbering skills and
teeth to fell a small
diameter cottonwood at
the pond’s edge.
Socorro Nature Area

Native trees, shrubs,
grasses, invasive vegetation,
debris piles, snags and water
provide habitat for wildlife
and an area for human
enjoyment. The Socorro
Nature Area is one of the
premier areas along the Rio
Grande Bosque of the
Socorro Valley.
The Low Flow Channel
carries water southward
