Nov 20, 2017 –

Students from Del Norte High School & nexGen Academy worked with community partners to plant native shrubs, trees and flowering blooms at the Tijeras Creek Remediation Project site last week!  Some MESA students, teachers and partners were interviewed by KRQE‘s Samantha Manriquez, pictured at right.

A big THANK YOU to Talking Talons Youth Leadership and our community partners: Bernalillo County Open Space, Jim Brooks and Soilutions, CUIDAD Soil & Water Conservation District, the Nature Conservancy and Tijeras Pueblo Archaeological Site for making the day so great!  Many students had never put a plant in the ground before and their teamwork made a difference at the site.  To check it out, visit the north parking lot of A. Montoya Elementary… the Tijeras creek is the natural space between the school and the highway – it collects run-off from the surrounding watershed.
