When you think of El Paso, you don't think of wetlands, but we do have a bosque that is something everyone should see. The El Paso Water Utilities and the Friends of the Bosque is opening the Rio Bosque Wetlands Park on Sunday so the public can enjoy the wildflowers that are coming into bloom.

Drought has been a problem for the bosque in the past few years, but the El Paso Water Utilities began piping cleaned wastewater to the park last year to replenish plants and wildlife. That water has allowed bitterweed, a native wildflower, the chance to return to large areas of the park.

You can go on guided and self-guided walks of the Rio Bosque Wetlands Park, check out the wildlife, bird watch, and enjoy interactive displays for kids.
