  • Fabulous staff and we'll maintained grounds. Many activities for naturalists, and especially good for birding.
  • great little getaway in town. borrow a pair of binoculars and get some fresh air.
  • What a great place! My husband and I were in the Santa Fe area and happened upon this place while checking out general birding in a Google search. We found the Center and took a short hike, and signed up for a Saturday morning birding field trip. It was great! Of the 12 or so people there, all but the two volunteers leading the trip were from out of state, like we were, just passing through. Great birding, very friendly and knowledgeable guides (Corkey and Warren), and perfect chilly weather for winter birding in the southwest. Great place with LOTS of bird activity! If you're in the Santa Fe area and are a birder, DO make one of their Saturday 8:30 AM field trips. We were actually spending the night before up in Los Alamos, but it was well worth getting up very early and driving back down to Santa Fe to join this field trip! The bonus was the fabulous scenery of all the red-rock mesas in the early morning light!
  • Situated in the mountains above Santa Fe at the end of Canyon Rd, this is a wonderful bird sanctuary with lots of trails. I like it because it's got some manageable hiking trails - they are steep but there are places to stop and search for wildlife (don't forget your binoculars!). Staff is friendly and if you don't feel like a hike there is a small garden with benches you can sit and relax in. Drop by the gift shop for bird books, bird feeders and other gifts for bird-lovers. Every Saturday they have a bird hike with a local expert and they keep track of species spotted on a board in the front. A hidden gem of a sanctuary!
