Public meeting scheduled to discuss southwest area office transition

LAS CRUCES – The New Mexico Department of Game and Fish has scheduled an open house to discuss plans to transition its southwest regional office from the east side of Las Cruces to the Mesilla Valley Bosque State Park.

The open house is scheduled to be conducted from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, July 22, at Mesilla Valley Bosque State Park, 5000 Calle del Norte, Las Cruces. The public is invited to attend and refreshments will be served.

The department in partnership with the New Mexico State Parks Division plans to house its southwest area office at the park where it can provide the public more educational and recreational opportunities.

Mesilla Valley Bosque State Park sits on the bank of the Rio Grande outside of Las Cruces near the historic town of Mesilla. The estimated 300 acre park features a visitor center with meeting rooms and offices, an amphitheater and group picnic shelter, hiking trails and wildlife viewing.
