You love the Earth, and you love all that it produces—especially wine! Take in a relaxing and earthy afternoon at the Fruit of the Earth 2014 festival. Here you can enjoy the year’s special release, a 2004 New Mexico blackberry wine, amongst many other selections. Bands Red Light Ramblers and Stagefright Slim will keep the party going when they perform on Saturday and Sunday, respectively. If you get hungry at this relaxing festival, you can partake in the Little Smokies’ catered food selection, which will offer salmon on a stick, chicken skewers and wild rice, shrimp tacos, grilled portabellas with calabacitas and cheese, and, of course, tamales. Didn’t get enough of the festival after the first day? Get a good night’s sleep in your hotel room and head back out the next day for more Albuquerque fun!

Love to be active? Be sure to leave the hotel suite behind on April 20 to get in a good workout at the Jemez Historic Site! As you venture onto this 1.5 mile hike up Oak Canyon, you’ll be challenged by rough terrain, but it’ll be worth it as you soak in the beautiful scenery around you. Just remember to come prepared by bringing water, a sack lunch, sunscreen and sturdy shoes.

Even though Earth Day is on April 22, that doesn’t mean you have to stop your Earth-loving celebrations then! Ditch the hotel room to attend Albuquerque’s Earth Day Celebration at BioPark.

Here you can see just how important being environmentally conscious is to the citizens of Albuquerque. The park, which includes the city’s Zoo, Aquarium, Botanic Garden and Tingley Beach, will be hosting eco-friendly events throughout the day in each area. At the zoo, you can attend the seasonal opening of the Animal Encounters Show from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The Aquarium is hosting a coral reef finding at 10:30 a.m. and a shark feeding at 2 p.m., and the Botanic Garden is hosting the Children’s Seed Festival.

The park is offering some extra incentives for green behavior, too—ride your bike to the park, and you’ll save $2 on admission!
