ABIQUIU LAKE, N.M. -- Join Abiquiu Lake Staff to celebrate Earth Day at our Earth Day Pollinator Party event, Saturday, April 22, 2017, at 10:00 am at the Abiquiu Lake Project Office. The event will focus on promoting the health of pollinators such as honey bees and monarch butterflies.  

During the event, participants will help build pollinator houses for the flowerbeds near the project office and will also be able to build their own pollinator house to take home with them. As a bonus, free pollinator seed packages will be given to the first 15 volunteers that show up to the event. We hope to see you there to kick off this year’s exciting Earth Day event!

Earth Day is an annual celebration on which events are held worldwide to demonstrate support for environmental protection. It is observed each year on April 22. In support of environmental protection, our event aims to support the presidential memorandum set forth by the president in the year 2014 to “create a federal strategy to promote the health of honeybees and other pollinators.”

Abiquiu Lake is managed by the U.S Army Corps of Engineers and has many recreation areas, along with a campground. The lake is a 5,200-surface-acre reservoir and offers some of the finest fishing in Northern New Mexico. Other recreational activities available include camping, hiking, picnicking and water sports.

The project office is located on Hwy 96 just 2 miles west of the Hwy 84 junction. For additional information, call the Abiquiu Lake Project Office at 505-685-4371.
