Fresh Christmas Trees at the Valles Caldera National Preserve This Weekend!
Los Amigos de Valles Caldera’s Christmas Tree forest restoration project has has been so successful that we need to cut more trees! Freshly cut trees of all sizes will be available at the Valle Grande Staging Area, off Hwy 4 between mile marker 39 and 40, December 12-13, and December19-20. Los Amigos will be there from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.
The trees will generally be White Fir. Suggested donations will be between $25 and $35. Please bring cash or check only. This is part of our helping the Valles Caldera National Preserve to thin overgrown forested areas to protect it from further large wildfires. The Las Conchas and Thompson Ridge fires taught us that “unhealthy” forests, with high fuel loads and uninterrupted contiguous fuel distributions
across the landscape, are prime real estate for history-making uncharacteristic wildfire on a previously unimaginable scale.
We hope you will be able to come out and choose a tree for you and your family.
Please check road conditions before traveling. We want you to be safe! You can call 575-829-3885 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to get an update.
Los Amigos de Valles Caldera is the official Friends Group of the Valles Caldera National
Preserve. Los Amigos has been working for almost 10 years to preserve and restore the natural wonder
of one of North America’s largest calderas (extinct volcanic basins) with its unspoiled vistas, lush forests, meadow streams, and the sights and sounds of abundant wildlife. To date we have raised over $1.2 million in restoration funds and completed six riparian and wetland restoration projects on the Preserve.
