Interior secretary to include 2 New Mexico projects as part of 'Great Outdoors' initiative

Interior Secretary Ken Salazar says two projects in New Mexico will be included in a 50-state report outlining proposals for reconnecting Americans to the great outdoors. The projects include the creation of an urban national wildlife refuge on Albuquerque's southern edge at the site of the old Price's Dairy and construction of a pedestrian bridge at the Aztec Ruins National Monument in northwestern New Mexico. The full report will be released in the coming weeks. It includes 100 projects nationwide that are part of the Obama administration's conservation and recreation agenda. The report is the result of meetings among Interior Department officials, governors, local and tribal representatives and other stakeholders. AP

Now we wait for the "crown jewels".
