Leonora Curtin Wetland Preserve

Leonora Curtin Wetlands

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.
