MOUNTAINAIR, N.M. (AP) - A state park in New Mexico's Manzano Mountains is holding an open house this weekend to celebrate its reopening.
Manzano Mountains State Park was closed for two years because of the risk of wildfires and a budget squeeze in state government.
State Parks Division Director Tommy Mutz said the open house is scheduled for Sunday from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
New Mexico Raptors Inc. will offer visitors an educational program and demonstration featuring live raptors and birds of prey.
The park, which officially reopened on Monday, is in the eastern foothills of the Manzano Mountains near the community of Mountainair.
