Was searching for an Indian fight location where my family had a herd of cattle on the Pecos River and were attacked in 1872. The location was Dagger Bend. It... wasn't easy to find, but Pat Dearen helped me find it. My Dad and I visited it last year, 2017. My Dad's ggrandfather was at that location in 1872, and my Dad stood where his ggrandfather did. And many years after the cattle drive of 1872, they built a bridge across the old crossing. And that bridge is now defunct.
The last remaining native mussel in New Mexico, the Texas hornshell, is being listed under the Endangered Species Act. Once abundant throughout the rivers in s...outhern New Mexico and the Rio Grande basin in Texas, the Texas hornshell has declined dramatically and currently occupies only about 15% of its historical range. Additional information on the Texas hornshell and today’s announcement is available at: https://www.fws.gov/southwest/es/TexasCoastal/. #mussels #liversoftherivers #NewMexico #Texas #conservation
