The Albuquerque BioPark invites all supporters to help clean up algae and fishing line that have built up in the ponds. The BioPark is in need of volunteers for this clean-up day on June 29 from 3-5 p.m at Tingley Beach.
“We’ve seen an unusual amount of algae growth this year,” said Kathy Lang, Curator of Tingley Beach.
The BioPark is hoping to “get ahead” of the fast-growing algae with this clean-up day. Tingley Beach has three of the most heavily fished ponds in the state of New Mexico, and high levels of algae make fishing more difficult.
The clean-up day will ensure the public can enjoy the many outdoor activities Tingley Beach has to offer. If you are interested in volunteering, check in at the Tingley Station before the clean-up begins on June 29 at 3 p.m.
