On Dec. 4, students from University of New Mexico's "Making a Difference" class came to the middle bosque
to clean up trash. The class is co-taught by Glenda Balas and Jack Trujillo. They worked for about three hours
and took
a huge load to the Rio Rancho landfill. Our bosque is a much cleaner place thanks to this Freshmen Learning Community.

Old tires and pvc pipe are loaded into the truck for removal to the landfill.

Just what do you do with a pickup bed buried half way in the ground.

It took a lot of digging to get to the bottom of the bed--about three feet deep.

Finally it is out and ready for a trip to the landfill
