Debbie Pike, Northern NM Wildlife Refuges Visitor Services Manager
Thursday April 15, 2021 – 7 pm
The population of Monarch butterflies has declined an estimated 90% in the last several years. As with bird populations, herbicides, development and lack of food have taken their toll. Debbie Pike is involving students and community groups in efforts to restore habitat and track Monarchs in New Mexico.
If you have any comments, concerns, suggestions, or praise for these programs contact our Programs Chair.
CNMAS Board Meetings
CNMAS Board Meetings are generally held on the first Thursday of the month starting at 6pm in the Community Room at the Adelante Development Center, 3900 Osuna Road NE, Albuquerque, NM. Members are always welcome. If you are interested in attending one of the meetings, please contact the president to get details.
Every spring Central New Mexico Audubon Society sponsors the Birdathon as the major fundraiser of the year. The goal of a Birdathon is to see as many bird species as possible in a 24-hour period while raising money for a special cause. Each team member raises money, and other CNMAS members are encouraged to donate money to support the team in its effort to reach the financial goal for the chosen project.
