Apps are a great way to encourage outdoor exploration while using technology. 


Valle de Oro is proud to offer two apps to help explore the outdoors.  

Discover Nature App links National Wildlife Refuges across the country. Visit Valle de Oro, the refuge in your backyard, to start playing. Then, when you are off exploring other parts of the country the app will alert you to other great refuges. Answer questions to win badges. Share your photos and see others photos from Refuges from coast to coast.  

Valle de Oro has teamed with the ABQ Biopark and the Sandia Crest, part of the US Forest Service to create a app meant for exploring locally. Agents of Discovery is a mobile game to interact with and discover sites across the country. Unlock hidden geo-located challenges that can only be solved through exploration and discovery. To get started, download the game for free onto your mobile phone or tablet. After downloading the app, choose our local missions: ABQ BioPark, Sandia Crest, Valle de Oro  

Both apps are free and can be fun for the whole family.
