Event Description

Durand Open Space was once home to Westernair Inc., an airplane maintenance business formerly owned by the Durand family.  Today, the property commemorates more natural airborne creatures—birds. Bernalillo County Open Space is working with a number of partners to organize a fun-filled family event celebrating both birds and planes at Durand Open Space. 

There will be a number of exciting things happening both on the ground and in the air include the following:

  • Guided bird walks
  • Bird banding
  • Live birds of prey
  • Birding 101 tips and tricks
  • "Birds of a feather" and other kids activities 
  • Real and model planes for display
  • Glider plane demonstrations
  • The history of planes at Durand.

Participants will also receive a free South Valley Bird Guide that is offered in English and Spanish. For more information, visit or call 314-0398.
