BEMP at Mesilla Valley Bosque State Park and in Las Cruces
The Bosque Ecosystem Monitoring Program’s southern-most site, BEMP South, is located at the Mesilla Valley Bosque State Park. BEMP South has in the past, offered K-12 students educational and stewardship opportunities through hands-on learning at the BEMP South monitoring site and in schools around southern New Mexico.
Monthly monitoring at the BEMP South site is conducted by volunteers from the local community. Ruby, a science teacher at Picacho Middle School leads the volunteer efforts with State Park staff. Together, they teach students and volunteers the monitoring protocols for collecting groundwater, precipitation, and leaf litter data. This data is sent back up to UNM for analysis and processing.
