Scope and Content

From the Collection: This is a small collection of newsletters, brochures, articles and news clippings concerning Albuquerque area open space including conservation efforts in the Sandia Mountains and the Rio Grande Bosque. The bulk of material concerns the Bosque del Rio Grande Nature Preserve Society which was founded in 1972 to protect the Albuquerque Rio Grande Bosque as an open space and wild life habitat. Society member Harvey Frauenglass and other environmentalists worked in concert with city planners to keep the areas of open space by the Rio Grande free from development. Their efforts helped create the Rio Grande Nature Center and develop the Rio Grande Valley State Park.
