Cottonwood pole planting in Willow Creek bosque
On March 14, volunteers from the City of Rio Rancho, Albuquerque, Boy Scouts,
Rio Rancho High School, local residents and Friends of Rio Rancho Open Space planted
125 cottonwood poles in the Willow Creek bosque. The poles closest to the river were wrapped
with chicken wire to prevent the beavers from cutting them.
