The Wall Versus Our Environment

Mark your calendars now for a very special event: Discover Rio Bosque on Saturday morning, November 15. At the Rio Bosque Wetlands Park the once prevalent ecosystem along the Rio Grande is being restored. Unfortunately, it is in danger because of the Homeland Security wall that is now being rapidly built. (If you get the chance, drive along the border highway some day and see what is going on.) The negative impact of the wall on the environment is documented in the above video.

Discover the Bosque – Last Chance Before the Wall!
Saturday 15 Nov, 11 AM to 3 PM. Walks through the park to the sight of the Border Wall will start every hour on the half hour (11:30, 12:30, 1:30, and 2:30). Many local organizations will have exhibits about the local flora and fauna.

Visit El Paso’s Rio Bosque Wetlands Park, http://research.utep.edu/Default.aspx?tabid=18875, and see the city’s largest park before the Border Wall changes it forever. This is a national issue with a huge impact on our local echo-systems - see history in the making.
