Mission Statement

A Tax Exempt 501(c)(3) corporation dedicated to restore, preserve and
enhance the recreational and cultural value of Rio Rancho Open Space, to
benefit or encourage public use.

Our bosque is a treasure of our community. It remains in a natural state, though now choked with invasive trees, primarily Russian olive and salt cedar. Our mission is to remove these trees and restore the areas by adding native trees and shrubs. This will provide an enjoyable place for our residents and wildlife.
