June 27-29, 2014 - Glorieta Mesa
LOCATION: Glorieta Mesa near Pecos, New Mexico
THE PROJECT: This June, AWF volunteers have a unique opportunity to camp and work on land set aside for wildlife and conservation on Glorieta Mesa. The land is part of the 500-acre Glorieta Freedom Ranch, which is dedicated to land stewardship and the demonstration of sustainable off-grid building techniques, including passive and active solar and 100% roof water catchment (no wells). A large part of the land has been permanently protected from development with a conservation easement, and this is where AWF volunteers will be building structures to control erosion and help hold water in the landscape to improve wildlife habitat.
Friday, June 27-Sunday, June 29
GEAR: Bring everything you need for a weekend of camping. For the work, don’t forget gloves, hat, long sleeves, long pants, sturdy boots, and sunscreen. Warm clothes for the evenings and plenty of water are essential.
FOOD: AWF will provide breakfast burritos on Saturday morning and bison or veggie burgers on Saturday evening. Please bring something to share for the Saturday potluck dinner, along with your own lunches, Friday dinner, and Sunday breakfast. AWF will provide water during the work days, but please bring your own mug or water bottle.
