At the Bosque: A Variety of Habitats

The Mesilla Valley Bosque State Park, located just south of Las Cruces, New Mexico, follows the Rio Grande for three miles and contains 300 acres along the river and an additional 600 acres of desert land. Within the park there are so many habitats--river, irrigation canals, marshes, floodplains, sandy desert, eroded cliffs, riverside woodlands, and restored wetlands. Here are some of the habitats we saw on our recent visit.
