Bosquitos events

The Bosquitos are the youth-centered group of the Bosque Action Team. Our mission is to learn about Albuquerque’s Bosque, the animals and plants that live there, and ways to take care of the Bosque and our earth as a precious natural space. Call Sarita Streng at 505-288-8713 for more information or if you have difficulty finding our group. Also, if you need special assistance, please let us know ahead and we will do our best to help.

Please come and invite your friends!

September 16 Garage Sale.  Clean out your closets and garage and donate these items to a garage sale to benefit Wildlife Rescue. Wildlife Rescue of New Mexico is a local organization in Albuquerque with the following mission:

  1. To rehabilitate and release to the wild, injured or orphaned animals rescued by members of the public
  2. To come to the aid of displaced wildlife and the concerned people who find them
  3. To teach scientifically correct information about New Mexico wildlife
  4. To educate New Mexicans about the importance of habitat preservation and conservation for our native wildlife.

We will meet at 9 am to organize and price our items for sale. If you have card tables or other easy ways to display merchandise please bring them. We will use funds from the garage sale to fund our November 4 event with Wildlife Rescue and hopefully give an additional donation as well.

We will make some signs ahead of time (and some that morning) to educate our customers about Wildlife Rescue. We hope that the kids will be involved in helping with the collection of items, pricing, and selling of items to put into practice the values of reduce/reuse/recycle and give back to our community and help nature.  Sarita will deliver all un-sold items to a local thrift store that helps with charity.  We will let the kids take a vote at the garage sale about which thrift store to donate to.
