Bosque Fire Restoration



The Bosque Wildfire Project is a restoration effort resulting from devastating fires within the bosque in recent years. The restoration includes the following tasks within Bernalillo and Sandoval Counties:
  • selective thinning of areas with high fuel loads and/or non-native plant species populations;
  • removal of jetty jacks and removal of debris;
  • improvement of emergency access in the form of drain crossings, levee road improvement, and construction of turn-arounds; and
  • revegetation of burned and thinned areas.
The project area includes the Albuquerque Reach of the Rio Grande bosque (also called the Rio Grande Valley State Park [RGVSP]), the Corrales Bosque Preserve, and locations within and as identified by the Pueblos of Sandia and Isleta. This project has been closely coordinated with the City of Albuquerque Open Space Division (OSD), the Middle Rio Grande Conservancy District (MRGCD), Corrales Bosque Preserve, Village of Corrales, the Pueblo of Sandia, the Pueblo of Isleta, New Mexico State Forestry Division and others.

Because of the project profile the project must comply with the NEPA process. Click below to find out more about the process.
