Lecture Series: Albuquerque's Open Space and Urban-Wildlands Conservation
Albuquerque has always attracted outdoor enthusiasts, such as Aldo Leopold, who helped to create parks and open spaces. Nearly 28,000 acres, in and around Albuquerque, are managed by Albuquerque Open Spacein order to conserve natural and archaeological resources, provide opportunities for outdoor education, provide a place for high and low impact recreation, and define the edges of the urban environment.
Dr. Schmader's book, Albuquerque's Parks and Open Spaces was published by Arcadia Publishing in 2011.
He will be available to sign the book after the lecture.
