Valles Caldera Camping Weekend

Valles Caldera elkThe New Mexico Wildlife Federation is excited to host our second annual weekend event at the Valles Caldera National Preserve. As a National Park Preserve, the Valles Caldera was formed over one million years ago during a volcanic eruption in New Mexico’s Jemez Mountains. One of seven super volcanoes found in the world, the Valles Caldera is a unique landscape home to the second largest elk herd in the state as well as other wildlife. The Preserve offers 54 miles of hiking trails, 30 miles of trout streams, and a variety of activities including mountain biking, equestrian trail riding, hunting, cross-country skiing, and snow shoeing.

This unique overnight event includes the opportunities for families, youth, and young adults to camp, fish, fly-tie, shoot archery, hike, and engage in biological and wildlife educational activities focused on the Caldera’s forests, grasslands and aquatic areas.

Stay tuned for more details!
