  Las Cruces, NM – On this edition of PUENTES a la comunidad, bridges to the community, host Emily Guerra spoke with Mesilla Valley Audubon Society President, Elaine Stachera Simon, and with National Audubon Society’s Bird-Friendly Communities Program Senior Director, John Rowden, about Native Plant Week.

The City of Las Cruces will issue a proclamation declaring next week, April 18-24, 2021, as Native Plant Week (it’s Earth Day week as well.)
