Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar joined by U.S. Senator Jeff Bingaman, Congressman Martin Heinrich, and Bernalillo County Commissioner Art De La Cruz to announce a proposed 570-acre national wildlife refuge on a former dairy farm just a few miles south of New Mexico's largest metropolitan area has been approved. As proposed, the site will serve as an urban oasis for both wildlife and people.
