The goal was to decide who is not included and how to get more stakeholders to participate. We also discussed the need for trainings on the west side of the Sandias, in the Bosque (Shining River Trail) and along most of the trails in the Sandias for at least the first 1/2 mile or so. Tom Stewart, president of the NM Native Plant Society will spearhead this project, and will set up an iNaturalist website usable by the collaborative and the RGVBB, as well as numerous local HOA’s, neighborhood associations, and general local residents, as well as Open Space personnel.
