Welcome to the Leonora Curtin Wetland Preserve

Although the wetlands have been open to the public by appointment only, the Leonora Curtin Wetlands will be open without an appointment October 25 thru October 28, 10am-3pm. Regular museum admission will apply (Adults $6, Seniors (62+) & Teens (13-17) $4, Children under 12 Free) and access to the wetlands will be available through the Las Golondrinas museum. We highly recommend wearing comfortable shoes, wearing warm layers, and bringing water for your walk.

The Leonora Curtin Wetland Preserve lies in an open piñon-juniper woodland, connecting the grasslands of the Galisteo basin and Rio Grande River valley to the wooded Sangre de Cristo foothills. The preserve’s natural spring, or cienega, provides an oasis for migratory birds and butterflies, as well as a habitat for nesting songbirds, coyotes, bobcats and other wildlife.
