Rio Rancho Bosque Closure

May 23rd, 2013 at 12:50 pm by under Wildfires

The portions of the Bosque that fall within the city of Rio Rancho’s limits will be closed to the public effective at 8 a.m. on Monday, May 27, 2013, and will remain closed until further notice.

High temperatures, low humidity, and a lack of rainfall have caused tinder-dry vegetation in the Rio Rancho Bosque area. These conditions have created an extremely high fire danger.

The full closure of the Bosque means that all paths, ditch roads near the Bosque, and the forest (trees) are closed to all visitors and users.
