Prairie Dog Pals has tentatively agreed to partner with the City of Albuquerque on a project that will ultimately re-landscape the area occupied by the prairie dog colony at Indian School and Tramway. In an effort to preserve the colony, the City has offered to work with Prairie Dog Pals to provide a more natural setting for the area. Prairie Dog Pals will "adopt" the area when the work is done. If you would like to volunteer in early 2009 to help with the planting and maintenance, please contact Prairie Dog Pals at 296-1937.

If all goes well, the area at Indian School and Tramway will be a natural environment populated with prairie dogs and native, drought resistant, plants. Please work with Prairie Dog Pals and the city to make this happen.
