Candelaria Farms

Albuquerque has its issues, but open space conservation and management to preserve natural and archaeological resources is not one of them. Starting in 1968 with the acquisition of 8500 acres (~3440ha), the City has added land almost every year since, and now manages over 29000 acres/11736ha in and around the city. The 97-acre Candelaria Farm was its first farmland acquisition, in 1977.
