Summer Wildflower Walks in the Sandia Mountains and surrounding open areas will begin this Saturday, June 7 and continue every Saturday morning to the end of August. People who are interested should meet leaders at the Sandia Ranger Station in Tijeras on South 14 at 9 a.m. to organize carpooling and discuss area where walk will take place. Group leaves at 9:05 a.m. and is usually out about 3 hours.
Bring water and a snack, wear a hat and sun screen, and be prepared for weather changes. Groups often go to Sandia Crest. Locations are determined by each leader scouting where best floral bloom is found during the week previous to the walk . If possible, walk leader will notify Tijeras Ranger Station at 281-3304 about walk location by Wednesday proceeding the Saturday event. Call to learn walk area or email email@example.com after Wednesday.
If the Sandia Ranger District closes the National Forest because of fire danger, the Wildflower Walks are cancelled until closure has passed.
