2016-2017 BEMP South Educational Programming
BEMP at Mesilla Valley Bosque State Park and in Las Cruces
The Bosque Ecosystem Monitoring Program’s southern-most site and educational hub (BEMP-South) is located at the Mesilla Valley Bosque State Park (MVBSP). BEMP South offers K-20+ students educational and stewardship opportunities through hands-on learning and commitment to the scientific process. We offer year round programming in schools through teaching and learning in collaboration with the MVBSP, Las Cruces Public Schools, and New Mexico State University. We focus our programming on long term ecological research contributions through citizen science, outdoor education, and in-class hands-on activities that ultimately generate useful data about the Rio Grande and its watershed ecosystems for students and policy makers alike.
Monthly monitoring at the BEMP South site is conducted by science middle school students at the J. Paul Taylor Academy. Sixth grade students are mentored by eighth grade students in data collection protocols for collecting groundwater, precipitation, and leaf litter data.
