“Bosque In Bloom” Family Event set for Sunday

Friends of the Rio Bosque has partnered with El Paso Water Utilities on “Bosque in Bloom.” The public is invited to experience the display of wildflowers coming into bloom at the Rio Bosque Wetlands Park.

El Paso Water Utilities began piping cleaned wastewater to the park last year to replenish plants and wildlife after several years of drought took its toll.

The water has helped bright yellow blooms of bitterweed (a native wildflower) return to large areas of the park.

“Bosque in Bloom”, a FREE event where families can take guided and self-guided walks of the Rio Bosque Wetlands Park and learn about the wildlife that call it home. Enjoy bird-watching and interactive fun for kids.
