  1. Great post! This hike seems like an incredible opportunity to explore the Rio Grande River and learn more about its importance to survival in the desert. I was just wondering, what is the maximum number of participants that can join this free event? It’s always great to see events that offer free educational opportunities while encouraging individuals to explore nature.
