The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is offering three outdoor events in March that will take advantage of southern New Mexico’s weather and natural resources surrounding the Las Cruces area.  The BLM events are geared to individuals, family, friends, and civic organizations from all age groups.  The BLM encourages the public to take time from their busy schedules to enjoy the outdoors and the wonderful resources virtually in their backyards.
