Albuquerque Academy, one of the city’s top academic high schools, paid a visit to Sevilleta NWR to study the Refuge’s biologically diverse ecosystems. Ten students from the school spent two days at the Refuge comparing 5 ecosystems. Plants, animals and soils were studied in the short-grass prairie, Chihuahuan desert, pinyon- juniper forest, Colorado plateau and riparian ecosystems.  Data collected on the trip will be added to that collected in previous years, allowing students to monitor study sites for long term changes.
