The ABQ BioPark invites all fans of fishing and water birds to help clean up fishing line at the ponds. Those interested should check-in at the Tingley Station.

Volunteers are encouraged to bring hats, sunscreen and work gloves.

BioPark staff and volunteers will be joining in the clean-up day.

“Monofilament is a huge problem out there,” said Amos Arber, the curator who oversees horticulture at Tingley Beach. “We have spent countless hours picking it up so we do not have to spend even more time rescuing entangled birds.”
