This year marks the seventy-first year that more than 800 Marine Corps Reserves centers and Local Community Organizations like ours have collected and distributed toys across the United States, Puerto Rico, Guam, and other US Territories. Last year, over 17,000,000 toys were given to almost 7,000,000 children. Because of your generosity, over 1,700 children in Grant County were able to receive brand new toys at Christmas last year.

Glenwood, NM, October 25, 2018— Beginning October 26, the Glenwood Ranger District will begin winter operations at the Catwalk National Recreation Area. While the public is encouraged to continue to enjoy this site, weather permitting, services will be limited during the winter months. The water system will be turned off to prevent freezing and damage to the lines during the fall and winter. The trash service customarily provided will also not be available during the winter season. 

In addition, Erick Stemmerman, Glenwood District Ranger, recommends that visitors use caution in the parking lot and while walking on hard surfaces. The parking lot, bridge surfaces and hard trails can become icy and difficult to walk on. In addition, wildlife continues to move close to the water in search of food and water. With limited services we are asking visitors to do their part to pack in/pack out trash and help us keep the area clean. Full services are expected to resume in May.

Remember to “Know Before You Go” and check the weather specific to the area you will be visiting.
