PRAIRIE DOG PALS OPEN HOUSE

Prairie dogs are a keystone species upon which 160 other animals, birds and plants depend for survival. Prairie dogs are unique to New Mexico and the Southwest. Albuquerque area prairie dogs often cling to barren and soon to be developed patches of land near highway slopes. They need your help to survive.

Meet others interested in helping Albuquerque’s prairie dogs. Enjoy refreshments, meet prairie dog caregivers and learn what’s involved in caring for these animals.

Please join us for refreshments and a presentation.

Date: January 8, 2006 from 3:00 to 5:30 P.M.

Place: J. Dwyer Police Substation, 1543 Tramway NE (2 blocks east of Tramway off Montgomery. Turn right at second street.)

The Albuquerque Cat Action Team (A.C.A.T.) is soliciting items for their 2006 Annual Raffle.  The raffle benefits the homeless cats and kittens we help, including spaying/neutering and medical costs.  Do you have an item, gift certificate or service you could donate?  Please call us at (505) 323-ACAT and leave a message for Nancy.  Tickets will be on sale beginning in April 2006.

BIRDWATCH: PNM’S PROGRAM TO HELP PROTECT NEW MEXICO’S BIRDS

Birds sometimes rest or build nests on or near power poles, which can put them in serious danger of electrocution. If you see a large bird such as a hawk or owl nesting or resting on a power pole, or even in a tree near power lines, or if you find a bird on the ground who may have been injured by a power line, please call Birdwatch at (505) 246-5700 in Albuquerque or 1-800-687-7854 outside of Albuquerque.
