TC3 is participating in a 8-week program with the Indio-Hispano Academy of Agricultural Arts and Sciences (IHAAAS). The Albuquerque based IHAAAS, an active participant in the Service's Middle Rio Grande Bosque Initiative/Bosque Improvement Group, serves Hispanic and American Indian communities and provides alternative education opportunities in agriculture, restoration and job training
