Apartments Near Rio Grande Nature Center State Park Apartments in Albuquerque
For many Albuquerque apartment residents, the stunning natural scenery that surrounds tends to be, well, a tad arid. Sure, the rock peaks at sunset are truly spectacular, and odds are good if you look hard enough you'll probably spot a lizard or two. But where can an Albuquerque apartment dweller yearning to explore some wetlands find solace? Fortunately for all, the Rio Grande Nature Center is just a short drive away.
Situated on close to nine acres of water-hugging grassland, Rio Grande Nature Center apartments offer an eye-popping array of natural wonder. Grab some of your favorite apartment pals and a pair of binoculars and head off on one of the park's numerous wooded trails, where you're bound to spot a staggering amount of bird species including wood ducks, great blue herons, chipper sparrows and even the occasional pheasant. Of course, when Albuquerque apartment residents think of wildlife, they think of reptiles. Fear not, fans of the cold-blooded, as Rio Grande Nature Center apartments will likely get you eye-to-eye with a host of non-venomous critters including bull snakes, various turtles and a hearty assortment of lizards.
For those that don't exactly find the idea of snakes being 'huggable', the local population of gophers and cottontail rabbits should sufficiently fill the cuteness quotient. Rio Grande Nature Center apartment residents will also have plenty of opportunities to further their wildlife and conservation education, as the park's Discovery Room presents several informative installations aimed at both old and young alike. So whether you're in the mood for some serious lizard chasing or just a quiet stroll down a winding trail, a Rio Grande Nature Center apartment offers some serious bang for your environmental buck.
